“Effective Communication Strategies” – June 6 – presented at Alzheimer’s Association office in Milwaukee – 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
The Alzheimer’s Association will present “Effective Communication Strategies – When Caring for Someone with Dementia”, on Monday, June 6 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Alzheimer’s Association, 620 S. 76th Street, Suite 160, in Milwaukee.
Communication is so much more than talking and listening. It also includes 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, their ability to use words is lost. This presentation gives families information about decoding verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia. It will also empower them with new strategies and tools to communicate and connect at each stage of the disease.
There is no charge to attend this program and it is open to all family caregivers. Registration is required. To register please contact Deborah Klement at 414-479-8800, 800-272-3900 or email@example.com
