Madison Speech Methods

Providing Speech Therapy and Business Speech Coaching in the Greater Portland Area

Dementia Series Workshops - Cancelled Until Fall

Dementia is a growing disease and families are struggling to communicate.  Lives need to be adapted to living with dementia with little or no support.

Madison Speech Methods has developed a series of workshops to inform and teach strategies and activities in the areas of communication, memory, and problem solving associated with day to day activities.

From getting dressed in the morning to taking medications to improving eating, we offer proven strategies and tools for the person living with dementia and to those caring for a loved one with dementia.

Madison Speech Methods is proud to offer 4 different workshops for you and a family member with dementia.

  •  Communication Basics - How to best communicate with a person with dementia for families / caregivers.





"Writing is an important and powerful tool in affirming self and encouraging growth. Writing provides an increased level of control and empowerment, more time and greater flexibility for constructing thoughts, and the opportunity to work through powerful and emotional thoughts and ideas. Writing enables an individual with dementia to reconcile issues of social identity that arise when faced with a diagnosis." Karen A. Bannister



Please Note:


The person with dementia must have a family member or

caregiver present for the entire workshop.
