Join us for the first of a three-part caregiver series: “A Life Worth Living” featuring Dr. John Zeisel, founder of The Hearthstone Institute.

One of the greatest challenges of at-home caregiving for a loved one with memory loss involves communication. Many caregivers wonder: How do I let my loved one know I still care? What should I say and how should I say it so that I am being loving and understanding of the situation?

Join us to learn how you can implement techniques from Hearthstone’s signature memory care program, I’m Still Here®, to enhance communication as you care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
