Free Virtual Support Call for Family Caregivers of Older Adults: How Do We Manage Difficult/Challenging Behaviors of Those with Memory Impairments?
Tuesday, July 13 (7-8 p.m.)

Alzheimer’s and other dementias often are accompanied by challenging behaviors that we are not always prepared to handle. When loved ones become angry or aggressive, it is not unusual to feel hurt or frustrated. Reminding yourself that the exacerbated behavior you are seeing is a result of the disease and not the person's choice may help you better cope with these feelings. Many of us have experienced these behaviors. How have you dealt with these challenges? What successes or learned lessons could you share with other group members? Join us for this important discussion. Learn more and register: http://bit.ly/ElderLink-Support-Call
