Effective Communication Strategies: Presented by the Alzheimer’s Association.  November 11th 10am-11am at Sunbeam Family Services – 1100 NW 14th Street OKC, OK 73106

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 dementia progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need ways to connect.  Join us as we 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 . RSVP with Andrea at 405.609.6551 or ahughes@sunbeamfamilyservices.org
