Building a Dementia-Friendly Community: Learning the Language

Thursday, October 26, 2017

Our community plays a vital role in the health and wellbeing of people living with dementia and their care partners.  A community that is dementia-informed, safe and respectful is a community prepared to support people living with Alzheimer’s and everyone touched by the disease. Learning the Language: Communication and Memory Loss & Understanding and Managing Behaviors During the stages of dementia, the person with the disease often starts to exhibit new behaviors that can be confusing for a caregiver- but they communicate the needs of the care-receiver. To help decipher behaviors and determine how best to respond, identify common triggers, learn the process for assessing challenging conduct, and strategize ways to connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
