Nursing Notes April 2021

Tips for communicating with a loved one who has Alzheimer's Disease:

  • Set a positive mood and tone, always smile and make eye contact.
  • Don't talk down or treat them like an infant, always treat the person with dignity and respect.
  • Be patient and offer reassurance.
  • Speak slowly and clearly, ask one question at a time. Sometimes visual cues can help.
  • Engage the person one on one, preferably with little distractions.
  • It's O.K. not to always know what to say, your presence is just as important.
