    For those with memory impairments, sometimes the only form of communication provided is through behavior, both positive and negative. When the caregiver is able to understand the behavior and interpret the message, it allows the individual to successfully communicate their needs. Come and learn strategies for communication and dealing with difficult behaviors.
