Live WebinarFri, Aug 19, 2022 at 10:00 am EDT   Starts in 41m
Course: #4459Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Communication is the basis for every interaction between human beings and involves providing a message and interpreting a message for each person.

Similarly, the message conveyed is more than just words; it involves non-verbal communication even more than verbal. This course helps you take a second look at how your approach and word choices impact a person with dementia while providing care in-home health and how care partners (family members) can better translate the messages people with dementia are providing
