Bishop’s Commons Hosts Education Program by the Alzheimer’s Association on Strategies for Managing Challenging Behaviors

OSWEGO – Caregiving in itself is challenging, but can become more complicated by dementia-related behaviors in the older adult.

To provide caregivers with some useful strategies, Bishop’s Commons Enriched Living Residence in Oswego will host a caregiver educational program presented by the Alzheimer’s Association of CNY.

The educational program entitled, “Managing Challenging Behaviors,” will offer attendees a three-point approach to address challenging behaviors such as wandering, repetitive questions, agitation and other behavioral symptoms.

The educational program will take place on August 7 beginning at 6 p.m. at Bishop’s Commons Enriched Living Residence, 4 Burkle St.

The educational program is free of charge and open to the public.

Register by calling (315) 596-4016, ext. 125.
