Communication Difficulties

Although dementia may reduce expressive and receptive abilities, persons with cognitive loss are still able to communicate long after language abilities and understanding diminish. This DVD discusses ways to assess the expressive and receptive skills of older adults with dementia or other medical conditions. It offers a number of interventions caregivers can apply, including the use of a 9-question assessment and intervention tool that promotes better overall communication and patient safety. (Part of a 28-DVD training series.)
