Caregiving Education Class

Effective Communication Techniques

Effective Communication, both verbal and non verbal, is essential to quality care. The breakdown in communication between a person with Alzheimer's disease and his or her caregiver leads to frustration. For caregivers, living with a person who no longer remembers them and their relationship can be hurtful. Understanding the language and communication problems that occur with Alzheimer's disease can help caregivers develop realistic expectations and improve communication as the diesease progresses. In the class we will go over tips and techniques for effective communication and what to expect in communication changes in each stage of the disease.
