Do You Provide Family Care for Someone with Dementia?
Please come to a FREE community workshop sponsored by the Pleasant Hill Commission on Aging. The 2016 Family Caregiver Workshop will focus on “Dementia Care: Behaviors, Communication and Coping Strategies.” Three dynamic speakers will give you valuable insights, practical advice, and community resources in these three areas of dementia care.
· Management of challenging dementia behaviors
· Effective communication with your loved one and health care providers
· Coping strategies for your own emotions and the sometimes volatile emotions of your loved one
This workshop is FREE to family caregivers (due to limited space, the workshop is not open to health care providers). Included are morning refreshments and lunch. Space is limited to 35 family caregivers and registration is required. Call (925) 671-5221 to register.
We are grateful to the following organizations for their support: City of Pleasant Hill, Meals on Wheels and Senior Outreach Services, Kinder’s Meats Deli BBQ, and the Alzheimer's Association.
Friday, October 21, 9am-1:30pm, Hope Center Covenant Church, 2275 Morello Ave, Pleasant Hill.
