Dementia Communication Workshop
Chautauqua Opportunities, Inc.’s Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Program is presenting a workshop for caregivers about the difficulties of communication with someone who has Alzheimer’s disease or other related dementia. The workshop will focus on how to prepare and respond to the challenges of declining communication skills as the disease progresses.
The challenges associated with communication can lead to frustration and anxiety between both the caregiver and the patient. Caregivers are invited to attend this workshop to learn what changes may occur and how to cope.
Free respite care is available if needed.
The workshop will be held on November 13th, 2019 at the James Prendergast Library in Jamestown NY. between 6 pm and 7 pm.
