Ways to Communicate with Alzheimer's
 

COMMUNICATING WITH SOMEONE WITH ALZHEIMER'S OR ANOTHER DEMENTIA

 

Having a loved one with a dementia already puts a lot of stress on family members and friends.  Having tools in how to communicate, can make life much easier.  Some suggestion are:
 
  • Identify yourself and call the person by name.

 

  • Use active listening (check out what they hear)

 

  • Keep sentences short and simple

 

  • Use repetition

 

  • Speak clearly

 

  • Keep terminology simple, avoiding jargon and acronyms

 

  • Use names and nouns instead of pronouns

 

  • Use concrete statements

 

  • Speak in a clear, even, normal tone

 

  • Wait for responses to questions

 

  • Don't attempt to finish the person's sentences for him or her

 

  • Use humor when appropriate
