 ‘I Already Told You… Don’t You Remember?’ Understanding Memory Loss, Dementia & Dementia Communication © 2016 Gemini Consulting, Inc.
Presented by Erin Bonitto, a nationally-known educator and dementia communication coach
This is an interactive, one-of-a-kind session ―unlike any dementia seminar you have attended before!

Chances are good that someone in your life will be affected by dementia – a neighbor, a friend, a parishioner, or even a loved one. Or, perhaps you are a professional serving people living with dementia. Knowing what you should do can be confusing, as you sort through the unending recommendations of doctors and authors and experts. This session will help you re-focus on what the person with Alzheimer’s Disease or other dementia needs you to know.
November 9th 9:00-1:30, lunch and Certificates of Attendance will be available. Sartell Community Center.
