The Alzheimer’s Association will present an education session about effective communication strategies from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 20 at Linden Court.

Participants will explore how communication takes place with Alzheimer’s. They will learn how to decode the verbal and behavioral messages of someone with dementia.

Participants will also learn how to identify strategies to help connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.

Register by calling 800-272-3900.

The Alzheimer’s Association values diversity and welcomes all families to programs and events, said Dick Warneke, the facilitator of the North Platte Alzheimer’s support group.
