Effective Communication Strategies

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Communication is more than just talking and listening – it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, the 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. Presented by Katie Roberg Program Services Specialist with the Alzheimer’s Association, MN-ND Chapter.
