Dementia is a growing concern and becoming more prevalent today. Understanding the challenges that dementia presents and how you can more effectively interact with these individuals is crucial. Join us on February 21st as Shannon Braun educates us on this timely topic. 

This session will include a discussion of how communication is impacted by dementia, and how changes in language and sequencing can impact a person's ability to communicate as dementia progresses. Strategies that can be used to improve our communication and facilitate a more positive interaction with those who have dementia will also be reviewed. 

This is a one hour CEU for Ohio social workers and counselors.
