Let’s Talk About It: Dementia, Communication and Changing Behaviors
May 12 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
We don’t talk much about dementia so when it happens to someone we know, we aren’t sure how to talk to them or let them know that we are there and we care.
This workshop looks at…
- What dementia is and the different types of dementia
- Changes in language and communication
- Loss of ability to perform more complex daily activities
- Behavioral disturbances and changes
Learning about the progressive damage to so many different areas of the brain helps us to better understand the changes happening to the person living with dementia. Many tips and ideas for positive interventions will be shared to help you recognize and encourage remaining talents, skills and strengths – not just assume problems and deficits.
