Do you know someone experiencing dementia or Alzheimer’s? Changes in communication and relationships can be challenging and sometimes frustrating. Learn effective communication strategies. Communication is more than talking and listening; it is a way to express who we are and how we relate to each other. This workshop will explore communication changes throughout the course of the disease, understanding and decoding verbal and behavioral messages, and identifying ways to connect and communicate through the stages of dementia. The event is free. All ages welcome and encouraged to attend.
The event takes place on Tuesday, November 7 at 10:00 am at 17 Barstow Street (enter at COA walkway). The speaker is Jennifer Hoadley of the Alzheimer’s Association. For more information, contact Jacqueline Coucci, COA director, at 508-758-4110.
