Alzheimer's Communication Strategies - NEW

$9

with Anne Romney

Calendar Sep 12, 2017 at 5:30 pm

Communication is more than 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. 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. INSTRUCTOR: Anne Romney has personal experience with aging parents, including the presence of Alzheimer’s. She has an M.Ed. in Counseling, a Certificate in Gerontology and is a trained educator/support group facilitator for the Alzheimer’s Association - Maine Chapter.
