Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia
Learn about the causes of dementia including strokes, tumors, and Alzheimer’s disease. We discuss memory loss, forgetfulness, how dementia is diagnosed, and treatment options.
Navigating Dementia-Related Behaviors with Effective Communication
This class is geared towards the caregivers who are caring for individuals with symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia. We’ll be able to explain the communication changes that take place throughout the course of the disease; respond in ways that are helpful to the person with the disease and find ways to connect and communicate at each stage of Dementia. This class can help make things easier for you both. You may find ways to change the person’s environment and set up daily routines that make certain behaviors less of a problem. Intended for caregivers only.
We also have support groups facilitated by our social worker for caregivers.
