Learn How to Communicate Effectively with Alzheimer’s Patients on May 1

 
  

The Valley Hospital will host a free PrimeTime community health program, Communications Tips with Alzheimer’s Patients, on Tuesday, May 1 from 10:30 to noon at The Dorothy B. Kraft Center, 15 Essex Road, Paramus.

Alzheimer’s is complex and caring for a person with the disease or other forms of memory loss and dementia can be demanding. One of the biggest challenges that comes with the disease is that it slowly takes away a person’s ability to communicate. You may find it difficult to understand a loved one’s expressions while he or she may struggle to find the right word, regularly lose their train of thought or have trouble grasping what you say to them. Fortunately, there are proven strategies that you can use to make communicating with your loved one a less frustrating experience for both of you.

Join Shelley Steiner, LSW, MSW, MPH, Education and Outreach Coordinator Alzheimer’s New Jersey to learn helpful tips for communicating effectively with someone with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. 

PrimeTime is a free membership program available to individuals over age 60. To become a member of PrimeTime, please call 201-291-6467.
