For centuries, we've known that the
health of the brain and the body are connected. But now, science is able to
provide insights into how to optimize our physical and cognitive health as we
age. Join us to learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition,
exercise, cognitive activity and social engagement, and use hands-on tools to
help you incorporate these recommendations into a plan for healthy aging.
To register call the Alzheimer's Association 24/7 Helpline at 800-272-3900.

Communication is more than just talking and listening - it's also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language. As people with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect. Join us to explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer's, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.

Registration required; call 1-800-272-3900. Program provided by the Alzheimer's Association.
