Effective Communication Strategies

This free online class teaches how to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help you communicate at each stage of the disease.

About the class

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 lose their ability to use words, families need new ways to connect. This class explores how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s and provides practical information and resources to help you understand verbal and behavioral messages from people with dementia and ways to help you communicate.
