Grace Episcopal Church, located at 510 SE Broadway in Ocala, will host an ABC of Dementia workshop from 2 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 29, 2023.
The workshop, to be conducted by Debbie Selsavage, President of Coping with Dementia LLC, will define Alzheimer’s and dementia, explain how dementia affects individuals, discuss ways to interpret dementia behaviors for better communication, and show how compassion and the proper use of voice, approach, and appropriate touch can result in more effective and less stressful caregiving. While the workshop is designed for care partners of loved ones living with dementia, people already experiencing dementia are welcome to attend.
Though the workshop is free and open to the public, registration is requested for planning purposes. To make reservations, call Debbie at 352-422-3663, or Carolyn at 352-351-0613, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
