The Council on Aging of Martin County is hosting Michael Verde for a presentation, "Love is Listening" - Empathetic Communication in Dementia Care. Family, Friends, and Caregivers of Individuals with Dementia are invited to attend on Tuesday, July 23 from 1-3 p.m. Michael will explore how we can begin healing the dis-ease of Alzheimer's by entering into the emotional lives of people with dementia.

The discussion will center on using empathetic communication to connect individuals with dementia to their family, caregivers and loved ones. The presentation, which is sponsored by Robert J. Banasiak of Janney Montgomery Scott, is free and open to the public. RSVPs are requested by calling 772-223-7800.
