  • Effective Communication Strategies – FREE WORKSHOP

    July 23, 2019  3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
    Chico Friends of the Library, 1108 Sherman Ave, Chico, CA 95926, USA

    An education program presented by the Alzheimer’s Association Communication is more than just talking and listening — it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, and body language. As the disease progresses, individuals living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias lose the ability to use words, but families can find new ways to connect. Join us to explore how communication changes when someone is living with Alzheimer’s, learn how to interpret the verbal and behavioral communication, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease. Tuesday, July 23, 2019 3:30—5:30 p.m. Chico Library 1108 Sherman Avenue Chico, CA 95926 Registration is required. Please contact Kindra at 530.895.9661 kadcock@alz.org Visit alz.org/CRF to explore additional education programs in your area.
