A free class designed for caregivers of people suffering from Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 11 in Corvallis.

The class, titled "Effective Communications Strategies," is hosted by Oregon Care Partners. It will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, 3600 NW Samaritan Drive.

The class is designed to help anyone who cares for an aging Oregonian understand stages of memory loss and improve verbal and nonverbal communication with those affected. A professional instructor will share real-world experience in an interactive classroom environment. This class is free, thanks to funding by the state of Oregon.
