​​Understanding and Responding to
Dementia-Related Behavior

Hospice Caring’s Seasons of Caring Community Education Series is designed to develop community knowledge and skills around end-of-life and grief related topics that can be applied to daily life. Our meaningful educational events and discussions help build a caring and compassionate community. The series is chaired by Hospice Caring volunteer Robin Levien, LCPC.

Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost.

Join Lindsey Vajpeyi, Programs & Services Manager for the Alzheimer's Association’s National Capital Area Chapter and Penny Gladhill, Director of the Volunteer Helping Hands program at Hospice Caring, for this workshop to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers, and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common
behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.
