As people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, caregivers and providers need new ways to connect.

Topics include:

  • Communication changes that take place throughout the course of the disease.
  • Decode verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia and how to respond in a helpful way.
  • Strategies to connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
