There Must Be a Better Way Than This

There Must be a Better Way Than This! Offers tips for understanding and communicating with someone affected by dementia. Losing the ability to communicate can be one of the most frustrating and difficult challenges for people with dementia. As caregivers, we’re often at a loss as to how to talk with and respond to a loved one affected by dementia. This 2-hour workshop teaches you new strategies to handle difficult behaviors and how to remain connected with your family member. Discussions will cover how dementia affects a person’s ability to understand and communicate; learn simple skills to handle troubling behavior; and feel more confident in your caregiving role.

Presenter: Christina Irving, LCSW, Family Caregiver Alliance
