Communication is so important in how we connect to each other, if we feel heard or understood, welcomed or not included. When someone is affected by a memory loss disease, how they understand information or express thoughts is altered. This gets more pronounced as the disease progresses. Sometimes, with the best intentions, we make some mistakes in our communication that create unnecessary frustrations.
There are some simple approaches, with the right awareness, that can make communication smoother and more enjoyable for both the care partner and their loved one with memory loss. Improving communication skills provides caregivers with more tools as the disease progresses, helping them stay connected their loved ones. Caregivers also report that these skills give them a better foundation to manage and navigate challenging behavioral moments more successfully. I hope you can join us on Thursday, February 23 for an evening of great information, learning and engagement.
