EXPRESSING THE INNER VOICE SENIOR SUPPORT GROUP

Date: Wednesdays, July 22nd through August 19th
Time: 10:00 am - 11:30 am (Zoom video conference )
Fee: Free
In this time of unpredictability and social distancing, our normal ways of physically connecting with one another have altered. As a result, many of us keep inside those thoughts, feelings, ideas, challenges, and successes we would normally share with others.
Join our five-week support group to connect with others, talk from the heart, provide a listening ear, and be privy to the wisdom of the group. We will spend time reflecting to find the kernels of joy nestled within each day. A question, theme, poem, short talk, or video will shape each week’s focus on support.
To help boost our morale, we will call upon our personal strengths to shape our reactions and actions. To identify your personal strengths, yes you have more than you think, take the free VIA Character Strengths Survey
Have your list of VIA Character Strengths beside you for each class, along with pen and paper for writing down your thoughts. Let’s have fun connecting and encouraging one another with new awakenings to our personal strengths.
(Please note, this is not a therapy or counseling group. It is designed for peer support and encouragement.)

FREE Webinar: Alzheimer’s Association- COVID-19 and Caregiving
Wednesday, August 5, 2020 10:00am-11:00am
To register, call 1-800-272-3900

Caring for someone living with dementia during the COVID-19 pandemic adds unique challenges for caregivers. This program provides simple tips caregivers can put in place whether the person living with dementia lives at home, in a residential facility, or care providers are coming into the home.

FREE Webinar: Alzheimer’s Association - Effective Communication Strategies
Wednesday, August 19, 2020 10:00am-11:30am
To register, call 1-800-272-3900

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. The Effective Communication Strategies program of the Alzheimer’s Association was designed to provide practical information and resources to help dementia caregivers learn to decode verbal and behavioral messages from people with dementia.

FREE Webinar: Alzheimer’s Association: Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Friday, August 21, 2020 10:00am-11:30am

Alzheimer's disease is not a normal part of aging. Join us to learn about the impact of Alzheimer's; the difference between Alzheimer's and dementia; stages and risk factors; current research and treatments available for some symptoms; and Alzheimer's Association resources.

The meeting takes place the second Friday of every month from 11a.m.-12p.m. To register for this free service, please contact Denise Davis at ddavis1@alz.org.
