HEALTHY LIVING FOR YOUR BRAIN AND BODY

For centuries we’ve known that the health of the brain and the body are connected. But now, science is able to provide insights into how to optimize our physical and cognitive health as we age. Join us to learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity and social engagement, and use hands-on tools to help you incorporate these recommendations into a plan for healthy aging. 

The program will take place at the Woodford County Public Library located at 115 N. Main Street in Versailles on Wednesday, January 9th, from 2-3 p.m. 

Registration is required; please call 800-272-3900.  This program is provided by a generous grant from the Margaret T. Stoeckinger Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Association.

EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES

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 us to explore 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 program will take place at the Lexington Public Library, Beaumont Branch located at 3080 Fieldstone Way in Lexington on January 15, 2019, from 10:30 - 11:30 a.m.  To register for this program, please call 1-800- 272-3900.  Registration is required.
