Alzheimer's Care

Helping the person with Alzheimer's communicate

Alzheimer's Communication

Alzheimer caregivers frequently report high levels of stress. Take our quiz and get resources to help. People with Alzheimer's and other dementias have more difficulty expressing thoughts and emotions; they also have more trouble understanding others. Here are some ways to help the person with Alzheimer's communicate:

Be patient and supportive.
Let the person know you're listening and trying to understand. Show the person that you care about what he or she is saying and be careful not to interrupt
Offer comfort and reassurance.
If he or she is having trouble communicating, let the person know that it's okay. Encourage the person to continue to explain his or her thoughts.
Avoid criticizing or correcting.
Don't tell the person what he or she is saying is incorrect. Instead, listen and try to find the meaning in what is being said. Repeat what was said if it helps to clarify the thought.
Avoid arguing.
If the person says something you don't agree with, let it be. Arguing usually only makes things worse — often heightening the level of agitation for the person with dementia.
Offer a guess.
If the person uses the wrong word or cannot find a word, try guessing the right one. If you understand what the person means, you may not need to give the correct word. Be careful not to cause unnecessary frustration.
Encourage unspoken communication.
If you don't understand what is being said, ask the person to point or gesture.
Limit distractions.
Find a place that's quiet.The surroundings should support the person's ability to focus on his or her thoughts.
Focus on feelings, not facts.
Sometimes the emotions being expressed are more important than what is being said. Look for the feelings behind the words. At times, tone of voice and other actions may provide clues
