Dementia: know the facts, take action
April 28, 2015
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
St. Francis Home Chapel, 33 Everett Street, Fond du Lac

Did you know?
• Almost two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer’s disease are women.
• Worldwide, 47 million people are living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
• The number of people living with dementia worldwide is set to skyrocket to 76 million by 2030.


Join Journeys: a health resource center and St. Francis Home for a two-part series to better understand Alzheimer’s disease, and its impact on individuals and families. Join us at either or both classes. 


Approaches to Communication and Behavioral Management in Different Types of Dementia
Tuesday, April 28 * 6 to 7 p.m.
St. Francis Home Chapel
33 Everett Street, Fond du Lac


Diana Mosnik, PhD will be presenting on the various kinds of dementia, and how to appropriately communicate and manage the behaviors a person may exhibit. She will touch on how dementia significantly affects the person and their caregivers. Dr. Mosnik, a clinical neuropsychologist, is in private practice with Medical Psychology Associates in Glendale and Milwaukee.


Effective Communication Strategies When Caring for a Person with Dementia
Thursday, June 11 * 6 to 7 p.m.
St. Francis Home Chapel
33 Everett Street, Fond du Lac


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 Ginny Nyhuis, regional services manager with the Alzheimer’s Association, as she explores 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 programs are free; refreshments will be served.
