Tomorrow, Wednesday, August 14th, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Access to Independence will be hosting a program for Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior.
The event will take place at the Access to Independence of Cortland County, Inc located at 26 North Main Street, Cortland, NY, 13045.
The presentation is an educational program by the Alzheimer's Association.
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.
At the program, one will 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.
