Effective Communication Strategies for People with Dementia

Wednesday, May 8, 2019

3:00 – 5:00 pm | Room 340 | Melissa Griffin, Alzheimer’s Association and Gail Snider, DFFW

Registration required | Seating limited to 100 | $15 | CE Credit 2.0

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 dementia 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 dementia, 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.
