Effective Communication Strategies with Alzheimer's and Dementia - Online

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. The Alzheimer's Association will help you explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s. You will 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. This is a distance learning class held by the Alzheimer’s Association. Visit https://tinyurl.com/NEISDComm to register for your class.
