Dementia Care Essentials:  Communicating with a Person with Dementia


A person may experience changing abilities as a result of dementia. When this affects communication it can cause misunderstanding and mutual frustration. Hear about the communication changes that people with dementia may experience throughout the disease progression and learn ways to enhance communication.

Through collaboration between Manitoba Blue Cross and the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba join staff from the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba as they talk about the importance of asking good questions, how touch can aid in communication and the idea that knowing the person is the basis of good communication.
