Upcoming MAY 2021 webinars from the Alzheimer's Association
By DebraMcDonagh / May 19, 2021

Are you the caregiver to someone who has a form of dementia? 

Have you just been diagnosed with a form of dementia?

The Alzheimer's Association offers many webinars to help Caregivers and those with a form of dementia, learn more about the disease, and how to improve coping skills. Below are some upcoming webinars:


Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior

Thursday, May 20, 2021
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM EDT

Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. Join us to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers, and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.

This is virtual program sponsored by Baystate Health.

10 Warning Signs: Early Detection Matters

Tuesday, May 25, 2021
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT

Alzheimer's and other dementias cause memory, thinking and behavior problems that interfere with daily living. Join us to learn how to recognize common signs of the disease; how to approach someone about memory concerns; the importance of early detection and benefits of a diagnosis; possible tests and assessments for the diagnostic process, and Alzheimer's Association resources.

Effective Communication Strategies

Thursday, May 27, 2021
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

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.

The Effective Communication Strategies program of the Alzheimer’s Association was designed to provide practical information and resources to help dementia caregivers learn to decode verbal and behavioral messages from people with dementia.

This is a live, virtual program. You will receive the access instructions in your email confirmation.
