Changes in communication patterns can frustrate both individuals with Alzheimer’s and people around them. However, there’s often more logic to it than you might think. This workshop will help you crack the code in the early and middle stages of the disease, so you can continue to connect in meaningful and enriching ways.
- Decipher Alzheimer’s logic – there IS logic.
- Explore multiple communication strategies to connect with people in early and middle stages Alzheimer’s disease.
- Discuss the emotional impact on both sides of the communication.
This workshop is facilitated by Borrow My Glasses and sponsored by Artis Senior Living.

Participants will walk out with a new understanding of the multilevel dynamics at play when a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia comes into play. We’ll discuss real-life situations, actions and reactions of all involved as days unfold into months and years. The overall goal of this presentation is to remove the fear associated with dementia and get people to realize the true joy which can be embraced when living in the moment.
