Session I

Alzheimer’s Association MN-ND (Speaker TBD)
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.

Session II

Ellen Kerber, M.D.
Family Practice Physician and Wellness Advocate Dr. Kerber will share current research and recommendations for using essential oils for both caregivers and their loved ones. Essential oils are a safe, simple method of promoting calm, rest, and balance and enhancing mood in those with dementia and in those who care for them.

Quotes

They call them houses, because that is how it feels, like your home. The activities keep the residents in each house busy every day. My family couldn't be happier with the choice we made to move our mother to Emerald Crest Shakopee.  We feel confident that our mom is cared for and safe.

— Bruce, son of resident
