Friends and family members of older adults often experience challenges when trying to understand their loved one’s concerns about different cognitive, physical and social changes, and then knowing how or when to address those “sensitive topics,” brings another set of challenges. In this workshop, learn about the cognitive and communication changes, the safety implications and techniques and resources to consider when approaching critical conversations.

Kilpatrick is a Speech-Language Pathologist and Memory Fitness/Brain Health Specialist focused on geriatric life enhancement. Kilpatrick has over 35 years experience in home health care. She is also a motivational speaker and author who developed the Communication Connection website and programming.

This is a small-group discussion and the number of caregiver participants is limited. Not familiar with Zoom? Join a brief orientation session at 10:30 a.m. before the presentation begins.
