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. In this workshop, you’ll learn new strategies to handle difficult behaviors and help you remain connected with your family member.
Please join us to:
- Hear how Dementia affects a person’s ability to understand and communicate
- Learn simple skills to handle trouble behavior
- Feel more confident in your caregiving role
