First Unitarian Aging to Saging Group and the Alzheimer’s Association Presentations

10 Warning Signs Description
Thursday, June 3 @ 7:00 pm
Alzheimer’s and other dementias cause memory, thinking, and behavior problems that interfere with daily living. The Alzheimer’s Association® developed the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s education program to help people recognize common signs of the disease and know what to watch for in themselves and others.
During the program we will discuss:
  • Typical age-related changes.
  • Common signs of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
  • Tips for how to approach someone about memory concerns.
  • The importance of early detection and benefits of diagnosis.
  • Possible tests and assessments for the diagnostic process.
  • Helpful Alzheimer’s Association resources.
Effective Communication Strategies
Thursday, June 10 @ 7:00 pm
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 dementias progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect. Join us to 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.
These two presentations will be Zoom presentations with time for questions at the end of each program. For more information contact Janis Elliott.
