The presentation will address strategies that support communication for persons living with dementia.
Language and communication are impaired in individuals living with dementia, creating barriers for health and family care providers to establish and to maintain close personal connections. Established and emerging evidence exists on how to engage in and to enhance person-centred communication for those living with dementia.
