Understanding and Responding to Dementia-related Behaviors: talk by the Alzheimer’s Association
March 10 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
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 verbal language is lost. This session helps us learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers and learn strategies to help intervene during some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease. This program is useful for for caregivers and families of those with a diagnosis. Sheila Griffith, Program Manager for the Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter, will be sharing this information.
