Alzheimer's and 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. 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.
Presented by Charlie Zoeller

Waterless Snowglobes!

Prepare for a season full of winter wonder with these lovely waterless snowglobes. We'll use Mason jars and figurines to create snowglobes that look lovely as part of your winter tablescape or decor. These snowglobes will be as unique as each one of the participants. If you have favorite small items that can be glued to the cover of the jar, bring them in (such as a favorite winter knickknack). The library will also supply figurines.
