Ten Alzheimer's Communication Tips

Communication is key in every relationship; however, it's critical to creating a successful and meaningful caregiving relationship with someone who has Alzheimer's or another form of dementia.

For us at Home Instead Senior Care (Burnaby and South Vancouver), it is a great responsibility to care for our clients and their families who are dealing with the challenges posed by this terrible disease. Unfortunately, we only see it way too often with our clients – family members, despite best intentions, commit some basic but potent communication errors as they grapple with the debilitating stress of a senior loved one facing memory loss.


To counter these basic missteps, we at the Home Instead Senior Care Team (Burnaby and South Vancouver), thought these 10 tips from Jo Huey, founder of the Alzheimer's Caregiver Institute were great reminders, for family members out there struggling to care for senior loved ones with dementia.

As stressful as this disease is for senior loved ones and their families that it impacts, catching the warning signs early, doing research and anticipating major adjustments in daily living can help families be better prepared and cope more effectively when dementia strikes a loved one.
