Communication Strategies for Dementia and Responsive Behaviours
In this course you will learn about the importance of communicating effectively with people living with dementia and different ways we can communicate with helpful tips and strategies. Participants in this course will learn about what person-centred language is and how it focuses on the person and not their diagnosis. We will discuss how an individual’s difficulty with communication can cause a person to start using behaviours to communicate their needs to those around them. We will also discuss communication approaches during the time of COVID-19. Class Size: Max. 50
