Have you ever had a hard time connecting with a family member or friend who is living with changes in their memory? As a person’s cognitive impairment progresses, communication can become more and more challenging. Join us to learn how to break through barriers and continue to have a meaningful connection, despite memory and behavior changes. Billie Ritter, RN, Health Education Coordinator at Senior Services, will address common dementia behaviors caregivers encounter, consider the potential causes, and offer suggestions on how to deal with them. Come join the discussion.

Class will be offered in-person and via Zoom/Phone simultaneously. In-person limited to the first 10 who request that option, with mask, temperature check, screening form, and physical distancing required during class. The class will also be broadcast live on Zoom and phone call-in.
