How we communicate with our residents and loved ones with dementia is crucial. We cannot emphasize that enough! People with dementia often struggle to be understood, and if they feel that nobody is listening, they can become angry or frustrated…as you and I would be too!
Below is a link to a list of 15 things to remember when communicating with someone who has dementia. Please share with your staff, and family members and friends of your residents too.
Have a great week!
