Are you too busy to attend an educational program? Audio Conference is designed for those who aren’t able to attend a program outside the home or office. Once registered, you will receive a toll-free telephone number with instructions through the mail. On the day of the conference, you will call-in and join many others who are seeking the latest information on memory loss. 

Specific Strategies You Can Use Today for Helping People with Memory Loss
When a person with dementia refuses to do something we need them to do, it is easy to get frustrated. However, a few simple techniques can help them stop “digging in their heels.” Join us to learn ways we may be contributing to their stubbornness without even realizing it. We’ll focus on skills to gently guide them from a “no” to a “yes” as we try to support them and keep them safe while honoring their dignity.

Tune In to Music: It is a Powerful Tool
Since the time of King David, Plato and Aristotle, music has been appreciated as a way to calm and heal. Studies are now helping us to understand how we can use music as a powerful tool to fight the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s. Join us to learn some valuable strategies that every caregiver and family member should know.

Overwhelmed? Run, Don’t Walk to Get Help Now!
By the time many caregivers realize that they cannot “do it all,” they are already overwhelmed by the demands Alzheimer’s makes on them. This month we will learn about various places to find caregiver resources, enabling caregivers to continue providing good care for their loved ones, and finding needed support for themselves.
