Neighborhood NAWBO East Valley In Person: "How to Talk with a Loved One with Dementia" | NAWBO

Thursday, September 16, 2021 -
11:30am to 1:00pm

• Do you know someone who's experiencing cognitive impairment?

• Are you struggling to communicate with them and them with you?

• Are you both getting angry and frustrated (or worse, sad)? with your communications?

 

What we may THINK is the best way to communicate can be offensive and hurtful. If this sounds familiar, please attend this session with our guest speaker, Pam Ostrowski, founder of Alzheimer's Family Consulting, Speaker, Dementia Navigator, and Author of "It’s Not That Simple: Helping Families Navigate the Alzheimer’s Journey", a guidebook based on her own 14-year dementia journey with her parents. Learn about the best ways to talk with a person with dementia while preserving their dignity. Start having higher quality, happier conversations!

 

You’ll learn:

• How to greet and engage with the person with dementia

• The words to use to get better cooperation and conversation

• How to relate to where they’re coming from

• How hearing loss can affect dementia

 

Pam Ostrowski uses her 14-year dementia journey with her parents to be a Dementia guide for family members so they can accept, prepare for, manage, and cope with the challenges, tasks, and decisions that they'll have to make in the coming years of the dementia journey. Pam asks thought-provoking questions to help adult children rethink their fears and beliefs and helps them build a trigger-based plan for multiple scenarios, while providing compassionate support during difficult decisions. Pam is a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)® and Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP)® and is the author of the highly rated "It's Not That Simple: Helping Families Navigate the Alzheimer's Journey" available on Amazon.
