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. The Effective Communication Strategies program of the Alzheimer’s Association was designed to provide practical information and resources to help dementia caregivers learn to decode verbal and behavioral messages from people with dementia.
Have you run out of ways to connect with your loved ones when you are confined inside? Kelly Shiraki, Director of Memory Care Services with Petersen Health Care, will replenish your list of fun activities and provide creative ways to help time fly.
Join us to boost your communication skills and get your creative juices flowing.
