  • November 21st  – The Basics: Memory Loss, Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.  This program is designed to provide basic information that everyone needs to know about memory loss issues and what they mean for all of us. The program explores the difference between memory loss brought about by normal aging vs. Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.  Register online.
  • November 28th  – 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.  Register online.
  • December 5th – Dementia Conversations. This workshop offers helpful tips to assist families with difficult conversations related to dementia, including going to the doctor, deciding when to stop driving, and making legal and financial plans.  Register online.
