NEA Big Read: Peoria Reads 2019 presents Saying Hello to Life Again ­– Lakeview Branch

With an emphasis on communication between family members when no one knows what to say or do after a life-threatening injury, illness or disease, Monica Vest Wheeler will cover:

• Learning how to laugh again and incorporating humor into the emotional or physical healing process.

• Focusing upon new or changed abilities vs. lamenting the loss of previous ones.

• Looking for the hidden blessings in a difficult time because they are there.

• You don't have to be brave all the time, and how we're much stronger than we ever give ourselves credit.

• The art of small talk when you know there are big things to be said.

Monica Vest Wheeler is the author of Alzheimer's, Dementia & Memory Loss: Straight Talk for Families & Caregivers. Free and open to the public.

Location: Peoria Public Library - Peoria, Illinois
