Effective Communication Strategies

September 28, 2021 | 12:00 p.m.
Register Now

Presented by Mayra Ligeza and the Alzheimer’s Association

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 program is easy to attend—whether by phone, computer or tablet. Once registered, attendees will receive a toll-free number and a webinar link by the morning of the event.

Please Register By Monday, September 27th

Can you prevent getting dementia? Are there any treatments for Alzheimer’s? What’s the newest research on what causes dementia? With scientists and clinicians making constant advances in the field of brain disease, it can be overwhelming just trying to keep up with all the information, much less trying to understand it.

In a clear and candid way, Dr. Forester, in partnership with Artis Senior Living, will share the very latest news on the science of Alzheimer’s.

Online Webinar
Register Now

Presented by Heather McKay, PhD, OT/L; Dr. Heather McKay is an occupational therapist, dementia care specialist and international trainer/speaker on topics related to dementia care and caregiver education

Family caregivers are supporting people living with dementia for a decade or longer. Recognizing changes throughout this long disease can feel like detective work. Dr. Heather McKay, will present a webinar focused on the five stages of dementia progression and strategies that work to support people in every stage.

Participants will learn how to adapt their help to match the person’s changing needs and foster more positive interactions throughout disease progression. Dealing with dementia is challenging, but when families and their myriad helpers understand the timeline and cooperate to redesign plans as the person’s needs change, they can provide the right support at the right time—improving life for the person living with dementia and each other.

Please Register By Sunday, November 7th

Baseball...At Any Age

Dad had been a baseball coach most of his life, and wanted more than anything to play again. So the folks at Artis Senior Living created a baseball diamond inside the community! When game day came, everyone turned out to play or cheer—staff, other residents and their families. The staff accommodated everybody—of all ages and abilities. Especially Dad. He got his wish. I couldn’t be more grateful.
