CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA, USA, May 23, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — A Friend at Home, in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association, is proud to announce its first-ever community engagement session. This free educational event, “Responding to Dementia Related Behaviors & Effective Communication,” is designed to support caregivers and family members of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease.

The event will take place on Saturday, June 8, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at 1140 Oakcrest Park Dr. (Maple Room 118), Encinitas, CA 92024. This informative session will provide attendees with valuable insights and practical strategies for managing dementia-related behaviors and enhancing communication with loved ones affected by Alzheimer’s.

A Friend at Home extends beyond providing home care services. They aim to be a comprehensive support system for our community, offering resources, education, and engagement opportunities to enhance the quality of life for both our clients and their families. They believe that by empowering caregivers with knowledge and tools, we can make a meaningful impact on the well-being of those affected by Alzheimer’s.

Hosting this community engagement session is a significant step towards our goal of being a pillar in the community. Alzheimer’s disease presents numerous challenges not only for those diagnosed but also for their caregivers and families. This event is designed to address these challenges by providing essential education on responding to dementia-related behaviors and improving communication with loved ones.
