Training Overview Description

We connect in many different ways, but communication is one of the most important. When language is lost due to a cognitive change, how do we maintain our connection? How do we find out what our loved one needs?

Event-specific Details

Join us as we explore the many types of communication and strategies available to use when the person we care for has a progressive dementia. Learn to listen with your ears and your heart when honoring connection!
