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 neurocognitive disorders 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 memory loss, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
Pre-registration is preferred. For more information and/or to pre-register, call the Monterey Bay office at 1.800.272.3900.
