Effective Communication Strategies

  • Thursday, September 19, 2019, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

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.
All attendees should arrive 15 minutes early to complete registration. Contact the CCESC office to request any special accommodations to attend this class, and to provide dietary restrictions.

This co-partnered program between Cornell Cooperative Extension and Office for the Aging of Sullivan County  is supported by a grant from the NYS Office for the Aging’s Caregiver Program and a grant from the Alzheimer’s Association Hudson Valley NY Chapter.
