This completely updated edition is a unique resource designed to teach caregivers how to help persons with Alzheimer's disease communicate despite dementia and deterioration of their memory, understanding, speech, language, and social skills. A series of in-service units focuses on specific aspects of communication in long-term care settings. By following the recommendations in the units, caregivers and family members will be prepared to support patients' communication efforts, improve their own communication skills, and understand how to avoid breakdowns in communication. A series of qhow-toq in-service programs make this resource extremely practical and easy to use. Real-life examples, case studies, and scripts from actual encounters with patients help readers see how to apply concepts to the patient care setting. Self-study questionnaires, checklists, and quizzes reinforce the material. Useful, full-page charts highlight key information and are ideal as overheads in training sessions. Suggestions for group interaction, role playing, and patient activities provide strategies for effective communication. A new chapter addresses issues related to communicating with persons in the last stages of Alzheimer's disease. Two additional appendices (a Model Case Study and Sample Scripts) provide examples of how the concepts apply in real-life situations.
