Communicating with individuals living with dementia can be challenging for caregivers, care partners and family members alike. Join David Troxel, an internationally known expert in Alzheimer’s disease and memory care and author of The Best Friend’s Approach to Alzheimer’s Care, and Home Instead Senior Care gerontologist and caregiver advocate Lakelyn Hogan to learn practical, effective tips and techniques to approach and improve communication.

Join to learn an overview of how Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias impact communication, in addition to:

The importance of verbal and non-verbal communication
Why persons with dementia say “no” often
The ethics around truth telling
The power of reminiscence
Later stage communication

We will take live questions during the chat, or feel free to send them in ahead of time to livechat@homeinstead.com.
