Communicating with persons living with Alzheimer’ disease and related dementias can be challenging as the disease progresses – especially when behaviors seem out of character to the individual. This workshop will discuss practical ways to connect with a person with memory loss and cognitive impairment and reframe behavioral reactions and responses.
