Effective Alzheimer’s Communication Workshop

Posted on

communication with alzheimer's patientsIf you care for a friend or family member with Alzheimer’s or other form of dementia, you know unique communication challenges can arise. 

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.

 

Offered by: Alzheimer’s Association Southeastern Virginia Chapter

Location: The Memory Center of Virginia Beach 1853 Old Donation Parkway, Virginia Beach, VA 23454
