We visited the ‘grandpuppies’ of our amazing volunteer, Shirley Squires earlier in January. We had a great time (as always), with lots of love and cuddles.
Effective Communication Strategies
An education program by the Alzheimer’s Association
Thursday, February 9th
The Gathering Place
30 Terrace Street
Brattleboro, VT 05301
Communication is more than just talking and listening – it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language. As people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect. Join us for this FREE program as we explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
Please register in advance by calling Patty Dunn at Brattleboro Area Hospice: 802-257-0775 ext. 102
