Communication between the person with Alzheimer’s and their care partner can become challenging at times.
I recently had the privilege of having Rachael Wonderlin join us on the Together in This Empowerment series.
Rachael has a Master’s in Gerontology and works in long-term dementia care. She also runs her own blog, Dementia By Day.com.
During this interactive event, Rachael taught tips & strategies on positive communication with a person who has Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia.
- What is dementia exactly
- How to use redirection & distraction as a communication strategy
- What it means to “embrace the reality” of the person with dementia
- How you can apply this wonderful technique in your own caregiving
