Father and daughter talking, father has dementia

Top 5 tips for communicating to those with Alzheimer’s:

  1. Keep sentences short and use clear, simple language

  2. Talk about situations and instances from the past, stored in long-term memories, which they are more likely to be able to remember

  3. Calmly repeat comments, if required, when they lose their train of thought

  4. Avoid a setting with competing noises; have a quiet, calm environment in which to talk and converse

  5. Be flexible and patient – behave in a way you would like to be treated, with compassion, understanding and respect
