The workshop, to be conducted by Debbie Selsavage, President of Coping with Dementia LLC, will define Alzheimer’s and dementia, explain how dementia affects individuals, discuss ways to interpret dementia behaviors for better communication, and show how compassion and the proper use of voice, approach, and appropriate touch can result in more effective and less stressful caregiving.
While the workshop addresses the needs of caregivers, it is also useful for those in the community who would like to better understand and relate to individuals living with dementia, whether they are fellow workers, customers, or friends and family who are coping with dementia.
Though the workshop is free and open to the public, registration is requested for planning purposes.  To make reservations, call 352-746-6200 or 352-422-3663, or e-mail [email protected]
