Individuals living with dementia often experience changes in behavior that can be confusing to friends and family. for caregivers, learning to decode messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language can help both parties to connect and communicate in meaningful ways. Effective Communication Strategies explores how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer's disease, offers tips on decoding the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia and respond in ways that are helpful to the person, and how to identify strategies to connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
