The free program, titled “Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behaviors,” is happening on Tuesday, May 21, from 2 to 3 p.m. at Seneca Nursing and Rehabilitation in Waterloo. Attendees will learn how to decode behavioral messages, identify common triggers, and develop strategies to handle difficult behaviors. This knowledge is crucial as individuals with dementia often use behavior to communicate when language skills diminish.

Interested participants can register online or by phone. The Alzheimer’s Association continues to offer resources and support for caregivers, emphasizing the importance of understanding and addressing dementia-related behaviors.
