Effective Communication Strategies
Thursday, September 19, 2019,
2:00 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
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.
