Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to 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 Thursday, May 6th at 1:00 pm on Zoom and review caregiver tips and strategies to respond to some common behaviors exhibited by individuals living with dementia, such as agitation, confusion, and more.
