This session will be led by Lissy Edwards
This session aims to explain how dementia can affect language and communication. There will be an opportunity to explore the emotional impact of a breakdown in communication/relationships for a carer and the person with dementia and to identify strategies to help establish effective and meaningful interactions.
This session is for you if:
- you would like to gain a better understanding of how communication can be affected for a person with dementia
- you would like to learn about different strategies to support a persons ability to communicate and understand
- you want to spend time with experienced healthcare professionals who will answer your questions in a safe, supportive environment
- you would like to meet other people who are taking care of a friend or family member with dementia in a similar situation
We don’t want anyone to be excluded from our services and so we can continue to provide them for free we invite you to donate to our charity if you are able to. All donations, big or small, make a huge difference and will help us support more family carers when they need it most.
