OFA offers ‘Effective Communication Strategies’

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. People with dementia can lose their ability to use words and families need new ways to communicate.

Join us to explore how communication takes place when someone has dementia and learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia and to identify strategies to help you connect and communicate.

The workshop will be held from 9 to 10 a.m. Thursday, March 12, 2020, at Madison County Office for the Aging, 138 Dominic Bruno Blvd., Canastota (just off of Route 5 in the Canastota Business Park).

For more information or to register, call Melanie at 315.697.5700 ext. 215.
