[ARCHIVED] Effective Communication Strategies

Colorful side image of brain covered in words representing emotions

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.

This program will be presented in person at the Library. Contact Kelsey Williams at kewilliams@alz.org or 615-622-4182 with any questions. If you are unable to attend, contact Kelsey for other options.
