Changes in communication and behaviour are very common in people living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.
Local families can learn practical techniques for living with those changes during a free tele-workshop offered by the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C.
Understanding Communication runs twice on Monday, April 20, at 2 p.m. and again at 7 p.m.
The tele-workshop for family caregivers explores how communication is affected by dementia and offers insights about effective communication strategies and ways of providing care that focus on the needs of the person.
The workshop is also open to health-care providers. Participants can ask questions and share with others who are in similar situations.
