Virtual Brain Bus: Heron Community Series
This is a 3 part series hosted in part by Heron Communities:
Tuesday, October 20, 2020 11 a.m. EST/10 a.m. CT
Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Alzheimer's disease is not a normal part of aging. Join us to learn about the impact of Alzheimer's, the difference between Alzheimer's and dementia, the stages and risk factors, current research and treatments available for some symptoms, and Alzheimer's Association resources.

Tuesday, November 19, 2020 11 a.m. EST/10 a.m. CT
Effective Communication Strategies
Communication is more than just talking and listening — it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, and body language. As the disease progresses individuals living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias lose the ability to use words, but families can find new ways to connect.
Join us to explore how communication changes when someone is living with Alzheimer’s, learn how to interpret the verbal and behavioral communication, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.

Tuesday, December 15, 2020 11 a.m. EST/10 a.m. CT
Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior
Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways people living with dementia 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 triggers, and learn strategies to help manage some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.
Please choose only one meeting to attend.
