Effective Communication Strategies
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

Audience: 
Families and individuals dealing with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia
AND
Anyone who would like to know more about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

Overview:
Communication is more than just talking and listening – it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language. As people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect. Join us to explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
