As part of the Benevilla C.A.R.E.S. Educational Event Series, the Surprise-based nonprofit human services agency will host a free educational workshop that discusses communication with those challenged by memory loss.

The free workshop will be at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 12, at the main campus in Surprise, located in the Hellen and John M. Jacobs Independence Plaza at 16752 N. Greasewood Street.

This workshop, part of the Benevilla C.A.R.E.S. Educational Event Series, is titled “Learning the Language: Communication and Memory Loss.”

It features two expert memory and communication specialists from Avenir Memory Care at Surprise and Royal Oaks Retirement Community.

They will share important tips and offer guidance on dealing with challenging behaviors and how to interpret and intervene in stressful situations.

The free event series offers expert speakers from vetted local senior companies on a variety of topics ranging from estate and tax information to area resources for health care and more.

Speakers are carefully selected professionals who can answer questions and offer advice.

A Benevilla representative is also available at each workshop for additional information.

Started by and for the community in 1981, Benevilla is a nonprofit human services agency dedicated to enhancing the lives of West Valley residents by providing care services for older adults, intellectually disabled adults, children and families.
