'Healthy You' Dementia Presentation Scheduled for February 20

On Thursday, February 20, Humboldt General Hospital will present the next installment of its 2014 "Healthy Year, Healthy You" seminar series.

"Compassionate Communication and Challenging Behaviors" will take place from noon to 1 p.m. in the hospital's Sonoma Conference Room. There is no charge to attend and lunch will be served.

Jennifer Baker with the Northern Nevada Alzheimer's Association will lead the discussion. The class is designed principally for those working with different forms of dementia; however, some of the key points can apply to care giving in general.

February's seminar continues a year-long series of "Healthy Year, Healthy You" presentations aimed at helping local residents achieve a greater state of wellness.

All presentations are held from noon to 1 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month. There is never a charge to attend and lunch is always served.

For more information on the "Healthy Year, Healthy You" presentation scheduled for noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, February 20, please call Humboldt General Hospital Wellness Coordinator Louis Mendiola at (775) 623-5222, ext. 1740. Pre-registration is not required.
