Successful Strategies for Relating to Friends and Family with Memory Loss

Do you have a friend or family member with memory loss?
Have you wondered what to do when they keep repeating themselves in a conversation or can’t remember what day it is?
Interacting with people who have memory problems can be challenging, and when we don’t respond well, the relationship can suffer. In this program, participants will learn proven strategies for relating to a person with memory impairment.  An overview of the common causes of memory loss will also be provided.
