Effective Communication Strategies-Alzheimer’s Association
Sep 20 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The Alzheimer’s Association presents an education program on Effective Communication Strategies on Thursday, September 20–3:00 – 4:00 p.m.

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.

Offered by the Alzheimer’s Association-Great MI Chapter-U. P. Region
