Strategies to Help Communicate with Alzheimer's Patients

The best approaches for communication

There are communication methods that must be considered when interacting with people suffering from dementia. Here are some suggestions:

  • Patients must be approached from the front so that they would not be frightened or get startled.
  • When talking to them, eye contact should be established. In this way, their interest would be captivated.
  • The name of the patients should also be mentioned and called. This is another way of showing that you are interested in them, making them feel comfortable interacting with you.
