Alzheimer’s and Dementia: Communication Tips Mobile App
As the individual progresses through the stages of Alzheimer’s disease or related causes of dementia, communication will become increasingly difficult as verbal abilities decrease.
How does it work?
As the dementia progresses, the individual may use words inappropriately (very much like a stroke victim), may have trouble rationalizing, reasoning, interpreting data, or making decisions. Because communication has become difficult, the individual may become frustrated or angry, which further decreases their ability to communicate. The Alzheimer’s and Dementia: Communication Tips mobile app provides a list of techniques to help in communicating with an individual with dementia.
