Lunch and Learn: Communication Strategies for Dementia, Cost $5

We’re excited to host our first back-in-the-building lunch program! Join us on September 21 at 12:00 PM as we catch up with dear friends, eat good food, and learn something new. Our program will provide information on the ways that Alzheimer’s affects an individual’s ability to communicate across different stages and offer tips on more effective communication.

Our speaker, Sydney Swartz, is the newest Fredericksburg Area Program Manager for the Alzheimer’s Association. Her previous experience includes social work with a focus on early childhood trauma and non-profit work in disability policy and advocacy. Volunteering has always been close to Sydney’s heart. After graduating with her master’s degree in Public Policy, she began working with the Association. In her role, Sydney is responsible for coordinating volunteer outreach efforts, educational program planning, community engagement, and supporting the families of the Fredericksburg region and beyond.
