Alzheimer’s Disease: Understanding and Responding to Dementia Related Behavior

June 12, 6:00 PM

Riverside Public Library

Type: Classes/Workshops
Age: Adult
Topic: Aging, Health

Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. Join us to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers, and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease. The presenter is J.T. Hunter. This is one of a series of free community workshops presented by the West Virginia Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association being offered throughout the Kanawha County Public Library in May and June.
