DEMENTIA-RELATED BEHAVIOR STRATEGIES: PRESBYTERIAN MANOR HOSTING FREE SESSION
Presbyterian Manor will host a Just Ask education event for caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s or related dementia on Thursday, April 11 at 7 p.m. in the Presbyterian Manor Chapel. “Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior” will be presented by the staff of the Alzheimer’s Association.
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. Friends and family are welcome as this is a public event.
Caregivers looking for resources, tips and tools will appreciate this evening session. Call Noelle Dickinson at 316-283-5400 for more information.
