Dementia Care Communication—When Words Don’t Work
July 13, 2021 | 12:00 p.m.
Presented By Heather McKay, PhD, OT/L; Dr. Heather McKay is an occupational therapist, dementia care specialist and international trainer/speaker on topics related to dementia care and caregiver education
Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia are challenging conditions for both the person with the disease and their caregivers. Even in the early stages of the disease, communication between family caregivers and the people they support is difficult as the person’s brain changes in areas of memory, language comprehension, language production, judgment and impulse control.
Broken communication affects all aspects of life, and in the case of dementia, it’s always changing. Award-winning occupational therapist and dementia care specialist, Dr. Heather McKay presents this program designed to help caregivers better understand why communication changes with dementia and new strategies to improve interactions when communication is a challenge.

We will explore the underbelly of giving care in a safe, fun environment. By exploring things most people don’t dare talk about, we can identify what is dragging us down, ripping at our soul and making us feel less than when we are working so hard to be more than we ever have been. This process can help you find the peace, balance and joy you deserve in your life, not only when caring for another, but throughout your life.
Please Register By Sunday, August 8th
