Understanding Dementia Classes at FTJ

People with memory loss have a progressive biological brain disorder that makes it more and more difficult for them to remember things, think clearly, communicate with others and take care of themselves. In addition, dementia can cause mood swings and even change a person’s personality and behavior.

You might be noticing that your loved one has some memory loss and/or might need help in some activities of daily living like medication management or dressing. What are the first signs that your loved one just isn’t “right.”  Does your loved one really need memory care?  How do you communicate effectively with a loved one with memory loss?

Jake Gamble from Generations Home Care is hosting a series of wonderful presentations for people who are caring for loved ones with memory loss.  With his vast knowledge and experience in the field of memory care, he is able to help us understand this disease and the challenges it may be presenting to you and/or a loved one. 

Please join us for one or both of these classes:

May 10 ~ Difficult Behaviors  Tips and tricks for dealing with behavioral changes with dementia.

May 24 ~ Communicating with Dementia  How to speak the language of a loved one with dementia.

Both classes will be hosted in the FTJ Care Center from 2:00-3:30pm. If you would like to attend either or both of these presentations, please RSVP to Adelia at or 253-756-6278.
