The desire to communicate and connect with other people is a basic human need. We will discuss how communication abilities may change as people living with dementia progress through the stages. Attendees will also learn how to modify their own communication and listening strategies to maximize understanding.
This course is designed to educate professional healthcare providers who provide care to people with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia and/or their family members and care partners. Participants will learn about common communication and behavioral challenges, methods for utilizing non-verbal communication strategies, and interpretation of behaviors as forms of communication.
