Travels with My Aunt and Take the Scenic Route

A Free CEU Event

FROM THE HIGHWAY OF LIFE SERIES – Travels with My Aunt & Take the Scenic Route

Communicate and Cope with Dementia

SUSAN I. WRANIK
MS, MA, CCC-SLP, LSVT Certified
Speech-Language Pathologist

Travels with My Aunt & Take the Scenic Route is a novel approach to helping people communicate and cope with dementia. Susan Wranik presents dementia in the metaphor of travel to a foreign country: different language, strange customs, and a new time zone. Coupling her clinical experience with twenty years as a caregiver, Susan utilizes real life stories to illustrate the changes accompanying dementia and share methods for improving communication each step along the way.
