Communication is more than just talking and listening — it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, and body language. As the disease progresses, individuals living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias lose the ability to use words, but families can find new ways to connect. Join us to explore how communication changes when someone is living with Alzheimer’s, learn how to interpret the verbal and behavioral communication, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
An Adult Care Activity will be provided by an Exercise Specialist from Hancock Wellness Center, for those caregivers who need this option in order to attend. Pre-Registration is required. Sponsored by Hancock Health/Healthy365 and the Greenfield Public Library.
