Alzheimer's Caregiver Education Session | "Responding to Dementia Related Behaviors"

Saturday, October 12 | 9:00 – 10:30 am | Rooms 209-211

Presented by the Alzheimer’s Association, MN-ND Chapter

Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways people with dementia communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. The purpose of this session is to help caregivers decipher behaviors and determine how best to respond. For more information about these sessions and the support group that follows Saturday at 10:30 am, contact Mary Cordell at 952.977.9363 or visit the Center’s website https://www.normandalecenter.org/.
