The Alzheimer’s Association Illinois Chapter’s educational program, Effective Communication Strategies, will take place from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, February 9, 2018 at the Memorial Medical Clinic, 1454 Co. Road 2050 in Carthage.
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 dementia's 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.
Program specialist Susan Johnson will present and take questions following the program.
The end of Alzheimer’s disease starts here. To register for this program offered at no cost, call 217.641.0140 or register online at www.alz.org/illinois.
