Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Family & health

Information, advice and suggestions for making vital communication easier and more effective.

If someone close to you has dementia (Alzheimer s Disease is the most common type) you will know that communication gradually becomes more difficult and at times frustrating. This jargon-free book explains why this happens and how you have to rethink your whole approach by:

Making key changes to the way you communicate
Creating the right physical environment for good communication
And bear in mind that communication in the broadest sense goes well beyond talking; there is also a wide range of non-verbal communication such as facial expression, posture and touch.

The person with dementia in your life needs your help. This straightforward book will help you to acquire the knack for improving and facilitating communication that works in a wide variety of situations including:

Improving conversation
Finding stimulating activities
Dealing with challenging situations
Making important decisions
Reducing stress and agitation
Moving into residential care

This book provides invaluable information for people helping to care for people with dementia at home and also those who do so as part of their job.
