The Alzheimer’s Association is offering “Effective Communication Strategies” at the Valley County Senior Center on Wednesday, May 15, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Presented by Alzheimer’s Association Community Educator Susan Gobbs, this is an educational presentation during which attendees will learn about: how communication takes place when someone has dementia; verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia; and strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
Attendees are encouraged to RSVP by calling 800-272-3900.
Because people are not always able to leave home or work to attend the in-person classes, additional free presentations are offered by phone and online.
