Effective Communication Strategies
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.
You can also take any of the free online education programs. Alzheimer's is a progressive disease where the person will require increasing levels of care as times goes on. Being educated about what to expect and learning about useful care strategies can significantly impact the quality of life for the caregiver and the person living with Alzheimer's.
