“Having a Good Visit…what you can talk about, bring to reminisce about…” presented by Martha Child, McLean Assisted Living Program Supervisor
Whether someone with advancing dementia is living at home, in an assisted living, or nursing home, visiting and communicating with your loved one or friend can be a challenge. Martha has lots of ideas to share with you from her long experience in the field. You will go away with lots of simple tips on ways to communicate and items to take along to spur memories of by gone days, interests, and passions.
