Dementia Care Dos - Communication difficulties can be one of the most upsetting aspects of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or some other type of dementia—and it’s frustrating for the patient as well as for loved ones.

Communication with those with dementia is different than any other form. Avoiding triggers and ways to diffuse situations can deescalte situations that seem threatening or scary to them.

I am so very thankful for all the tips, I feel better equipped and somewhat grounded when dealing with these problems with my loved ones.
