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 program is Part 3 of a 5 part series on Alzheimers & Dementia presented by Jim Mangi, PhD, in conjunction with the Washtenaw County Alzheimers Association.

This program is approximately 1 hour with Q & A time at the end. Registration suggested, but not mandatory.  To register call the library at 734-426-4477.  All are welcome to attend.
