Effective Communications with People with Memory Loss.
Wednesday, April 11. 1:00 to 2:30. Community Center.
If you have a loved one or friend with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, this presentation will help you. Knowing what changes can occur over time, anticipating these changes and knowing how to respond can greatly help everyone. Annie Marrs, Family Services Director of the Alzheimer’s Association for Central and Western Virginia, will speak about the stages of the disease and communications strategies as people progress through these stages and the ability to use words diminishes.
Annie is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She has worked in this field for many years, facilitating support groups, as well as providing family and individual care consultations to help navigate the progression of Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
The LOWLINC Speaker Series is open to LOWLINC members, volunteers and Lake residents. Please tell your friends and neighbors and invite them to come.
