Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. Join us to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers, and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.

Presentation is made possible by the Alzheimer’s Association and will be in Cantonese. Sign-up is recommended. Please call 415-355-2888 or ask the information desk.
