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.
