Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior

Alzheimer’s is not a “normal” part of the aging process. It’s a disease of the brain that causes problems with memory, thinking and 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 behavioral triggers, and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.

Join us for this education program presented by the Alzheimer’s Association of Central New York on Tuesday, November 13th, starting at 5:30 PM, here at Hospice of Central New York at 990 Seventh North Street, Liverpool.
