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 how 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 take place at the Clark County Public Library located at 270 South Burns Avenue in Winchester on Tuesday, July 23rd from 6pm-7:30pm.  Registration is required; please call 1-800-272-3900. Program provided by the Alzheimer’s Association. 

WEBINAR: RESOURCES FOR OVERWHELMED CAREGIVERS: HOW TO GET HELP NOW

In this webinar we will learn about various places to find caregiver resources, enabling caregivers to continue providing good care for their loved ones, and finding needed support for themselves. 

This webinar will be held on Tuesday, July 23rd, from 11-11:30AM EST/10-10:30AM CST or 2-2:30PM EST/ 1-1:30AM CST.   Registration is required by visiting ALZWebinars.org. Program provided by the Alzheimer’s Association.
