Presented by Tami Meyer, MA, CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist
Communication disorders associated with dementia often result in frustration for family members and professional caregivers. The person with dementia may also feel frustrated, start to withdraw, and over time become isolated. The loss of social ties can have a negative impact on their physical and mental health. Fortunately, there are strategies to support communication with those who have dementia. This can improve their social connection and enhance their quality of life. Participants will learn techniques to facilitate communication with those who have Dementia, including Alzheimer's Disease, and other cognitive disorders.
