Communicating with a loved one who has Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia can be frustrating and disheartening. However, a few simple strategies can make caregiving easier and help you continue to feel connected to your loved one.

In this interactive half-day workshop we will discuss how dementia affects a person’s ability to understand and communicate. Participants will be coached on the best ways to handle troubling behavior and how to speak with and respond to a person with memory loss.

Group size is limited and please let AJ Dugay know if you have a disability and require assistance. We regret to inform you that we are unable to accommodate professional and/or paid caregivers at this event. Light refreshments will be provided.  

Respite scholarships may be available.
