Tuesday, September 3rd at 7 p.m. Effective communication strategies    
     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.

Tuesday, September 10th at 7 p.m. Living with Alzheimer's for caregivers
    
When someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, friends and family have many questions. What does the diagnosis mean? What kinds of plans need to be made? What resources are available to help? As the disease progresses, new questions reflect growing needs for skills, programs and services.  Join us for this series of programs that provide answers to the questions that arise in the early, middle and late stages of the disease.  Hear from those directly affected and learn what you need to know, what you need to plan, and what you can do at each point along the way.
