Thursday, April 20th from 4:30 PM – 5:45 PM at Lower Mills Library, 27 Richmond Street, Dorchester, MA 02124
Presented by Julie Williamson, Executive Director of Standish Village Assisted Living. This presentation provides an overview of what dementia is and is not, common symptoms that accompany memory loss, and communication techniques for real-world situations. Our training helps to build both empathy and understanding of dementia and gives practical tools for someone to use when communicating with or assisting individuals with memory loss. Caregivers, healthcare professionals, and the interested public are encouraged to attend this free training.
We will also discuss how education can be a crucial tool when fighting the stigma of dementia, as it builds stronger understanding of what someone may be going through when experiencing memory loss. Call the Lower Mills Library at (617) 298-7841 for more information.
