Legal and Financial Planning for Alzheimer's Disease

If you or someone you know is affected by Alzheimer's disease or Dementia, the time for legal and financial planning is now.  Legal and Financial Planning for Alzheimer's Disease is a workshop, presented by the Alzheimer's Association, for anyone who would like to know more about what legal and financial issues to consider and how to put plans in place.

Thursday, August 24th, 2017
@ 2:00pm
Alzheimer's Association - West Palm Beach Office
3333 Forest Hill Blvd., West Palm Beach, FL 33406
For info, contact Jenifer Brito at 561-967-0047

Effective Communication Strategies

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.

Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior
 
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 language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. Join us to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers, and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.
