Communicating and Advocating with Medical Professionals

It is quite likely that you as the family caregiver have found yourself gradually assuming, month-by month, the role of taking care of your loved one as dementia or other disabling illness has taken hold, and a first encounter with the health care system has left you confused and with a feeling of the system being very impersonal. This 1-day FREE workshop helps to clarify the current realities of the health care experience, teaches you how to identify and use more effective communication techniques with health care professionals, and to practice powerful communication tools and techniques in order to be a better advocate on behalf of your loved one.

Presenter: Christina Irving, LCSW, Family Caregiver Alliance
