Alzheimer’s Caregiver Workshop

Joni Bitzer   -  

Blue Grass Church is hosting a free Dementia Caregiver workshop on Wednesday, May 18th from 1:00-4:00pm in the Hospitality Room at our Main Campus.

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.

This caregiver workshop will include information on effective communication strategies, Medicaid Waiver, assistance with daily living, and hospice services.

This workshop is done in partnership with Alzheimer’s Association, Adaptive Nursing& Healthcare Services, and SWIRCA &More.
