We’ll let you know when our new site is live. But, don’t worry about missing out. Our current website will automatically redirect to our new one once we’re ready to launch.

Dementia-Related Behaviors & Effective Communication

Wednesday, June 12, 1-2:30pm

In this workshop presented by the Alzheimer’s Association, we’ll review caregiver tips and strategies to respond to some common behaviors exhibited by individuals living with dementia, such as agitation and confusion. We’ll also explore ways that Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia affect an individual’s ability to communicate in different stages of the disease. You’ll come away with tips on how to better communicate with people living with Alzheimer’s.

Please RSVP to the front desk, 206-932-4044.

 

 

History Hour Series –

June: Pride Month

State of Pride

Wednesday, June 26, 1-3:30pm

Join us for the documentary State of Pride. Fifty years after the Stonewall uprising, Oscar®-winning filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman and host Raymond Braun travel to three diverse communities— Salt Lake City, San Francisco and Tuscaloosa, Alabama—for an unflinching look at LGBTQ pride, from the perspective of a younger generation for whom it still has personal urgency. An after-film discussion will be facilitated by Patricia Throop, former board member of The Center who has been a LGBTQ activist for 40 years and was a member of the Freedom Day Committee who put on the Seattle Pride Parade and Freedom March from 1986-1996.

Please RSVP to the front desk, 206-932-4044.
