Understanding Alzheimer's

If you have a family member who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia disorder, Schneck Medical Center and the Alzheimer’s Association invite you to an education program on 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.
 
The program will be held on Thursday, April 18, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., in the Schneck Auditorium. Adult caregivers can be provided at Schneck if requested in advance of the program. Refreshments will be served.
 
We understand that caregiving for someone with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia is incredibly stressful. We hope to support your ongoing health and ability to cope so you can be in a better position to help the person you love.

Registration is required. 

For more information or to register, please call 812-523-5877. If your call is not answered, please leave a message with your name and number attending.
