Milwaukee, WI – The Alzheimer’s Association will host a two-hour presentation called “Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior” on Monday, July 18 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Alzheimer’s Association, 620 S. 76th Street, Suite 160, in Milwaukee.
Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. This two hour presentation teaches family caregivers to decode behavioral triggers and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.
The program is free of charge, but registration is required. To register, please contact Deborah Klement at 414-479-8800, 800-272-3900 or email@example.com
