WILLIAMSON COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY
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 forms of dementia progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect. The Williamson County Public Library has organized a program from noon to 1 p.m. this coming Monday to share some of the techniques.
Join specialists from the Alzheimer’s Association, Mid South Chapter 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.
Participants are invited to bring their own lunch and beverage to enjoy while listening to presentation.
Registration is required for each individual planning to attend as seating in the first floor meeting room is limited.
The Williamson County Public Library main branch is at 1314 Columbia Ave, Franklin, TN 37064.
