Effective Communication Tips

One of the most stressful situations when it comes to care giving is being able to maintain communication. This article that I recently read from the Mayo Clinic's website cites many different strategies that you can use to effectively communicate with your loved one who has Alzheimer's. Some of these tips include speaking clearly, showing respect, showing genuine interest, and trying not to interrupt as they are speaking, just to name a few. It may take a combination of all of these tips on some days. Stay focused, and know that there is help for you if you need some support.
