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 the Alzheimer's Association for this free workshop. Topics covered include:
• How communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s disease
• Learn how to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia
• Identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease
