At any stage of Alzheimer’s, those who are diagnosed require care and support from friends and family around them. An important aspect of caring for individuals with this disease is the form of communication that is used. Communication with a person with Alzheimer's requires patience, understanding and good listening skills. They often have more difficulty expressing thoughts and emotions; and more trouble understanding others (Alzheimer’s Association).
If you’re a caregiver for a loved one with Alzheimer’s, check out this helpful video from the Alzheimer’s Society of Ontario to learn how you can maintain a connection with those you care for.
I have always been so impressed by the passion and commitment of our employees. From the companions that I work with everyday in Simcoe-Muskoka, to those who looked after my Aunt in Toronto, each and every one has provided outstanding care to their clients.
