Connecting Colorado Neighbors-The Foerster Team: March 2016

Alzheimer's Association Speakers' Bureau

Alzheimer's Association Speakers' Bureau

Today I attended a training session at the Colorado Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. I am preparing to become a member of the team of volunteers that make up the Speaker's Bureau. These folks go out in the community and speak to various organizations, groups and the general public to educate them on various topics in regards to Alzheimer's Disease. Some of these topics include: the Basics, 10 Warning Signs, Communication, Behaviors, Healthy Living and the Stages of the Disease.

We started with the Basics of Memory Loss, Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease. There is much to learn and then share as a speaker. It's going to take me some time to feel comfortable with all the material and also to feel at ease to deliver the information and engage my audience.

I'm not shy, by any means, however I want to be sure I know what I'm talking about and that I'm sharing something of value. I also want it to be natural and interactive.

 

Over the next few months, I'll share with my readers what I've learned in preparing for my presentations. My next post will cover the 10 warning signs. I will also share resources available through the local chapter of the Association.
