Communicating with Seniors
 

COMMUNICATING WITH SENIORS

Communicating with a loved one can be difficult.  Often, families do not understand their actions and attitudes when their loved ones seem to reject our suggestions.  Below are suggestions for helping when communicating our thoughts:

  • Really listen
  • Pay attention
  • Repeat using different words if he/she doesn't understand
  • Speak distinctly
  • Talk directly to the person
  • Take your time, one thought at a time
  • Use body language/non verbal cues
  • Use tone of voice appropriate to the conversation
  • Listen to silence
  • Acknowledge feelings even if you don't agree
  • Look for hidden meanings
  • Encourage and reassure
  • Find meaning in their experience
