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. This class will be held Wednesday, August 26, 2015, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Placerville Senior Center 937 Spring Street in Placerville.

This seminar is presented by El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency Family Caregiver Support Program and the Alzheimer's Association.  Registration is requested by calling the Alzheimer's Association at 800- 272-3900 or email ptardio@alz.org.
