In Partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association in Recognition of National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month
On Tuesday, November 18, 11:30 am-12:30 pm, the JCC will host a special presentation Communication: The Key to Understanding Behaviors, to help people in the community learn how to care for a person or loved one with Alzheimer’s disease. The talk will focus on how to make sense of difficult behaviors so caregivers can find easier ways to help improve quality of life–for both the people they care for and themselves. Topics will include how to avoid unnecessary arguments; recognize triggers which may result in aggressive or risky behaviors; communication techniques to effectively respond to repetitive actions, recognition difficulties, and anxious or agitated feelings. Will include Q&A and light refreshments will be served.
