Monmouth Medical Center Presents Communication Tips and Techniques in Alzheimer’s Disease


Monmouth Medical Center, in conjunction with Alzheimer’s New Jersey, will host a program “Communication Tips and Techniques in Alzheimer’s Disease” on Wednesday, May 11 from 2 to 3 p.m. at Monmouth Medical Center, located at 300 Second Avenue in Long Branch.

As Alzheimer’s disease progresses, people with the disease lose their ability to use words to communicate. This free program, designed for caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s disease, will offer information about improving communication at each stage of the disease, focusing on how to recognize behavior as a form of communication. Topics will include how to identify verbal and non-verbal messages to connect with the person living with Alzheimer’s disease.

According to Alzheimer’s New Jersey, as Alzheimer’s disease progresses, people with the disease lose their ability to use words to communicate. A caregiver’s attitude and knowledge of the disease affects the care of individuals with the disease. The more one knows about Alzheimer’s, the more likely they will be to understand and handle behavioral problems.

There is no fee to attend this program but pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, please call Alzheimer’s New Jersey at 888-280-6055.
