Leading Nutrition’s dietitians are regularly involved in attending, learning and updating their knowledge with professional development events. Adele, our Brisbane Aged Care dietitian has recently attended a professional development event on Communication and Dementia, run by Alzheimer’s Association Queensland. Adele has provided us a summary of tips and considerations that we should all remind ourselves of when trying to communicate with residents with dementia. Thanks Adele!
Helpful communication strategies:
Remember that communication for people with dementia is significantly non-verbal.
