  • you would like to gain a better understanding of how communication can be affected for a person with dementia
  • you would like to learn about different strategies to support a persons ability to communicate and understand
  • you want to spend time with experienced healthcare professionals who will answer your questions in a safe, supportive environment
  • you would like to meet other people who are taking care of a friend or family member with dementia in a similar situation
