Communication in Dementia

Conversations with Dr. Tam Cummings - A Monthly Education Series for the Dementia Caregiver

THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2021 11:00 A.M.- 12:15 P.M. ET, 10:00 A.M.- 11:15 A.M. CT

Featuring Guest Speaker Tam Cummings, Ph.D., Gerontologist, Author, Untangling Alzheimer’s: The Guide for Families and Professionals

A Person with Dementia (PWD) is suffering from a terminal brain disease. Understanding how memory works, knowing the type of dementia your loved one has, and the stage of the disease, allows caregivers to target conversation to the memories that continue to function. Using this skill allows for interactions with old memory and can lead families to new insights into their loved one’s younger life. Join us as Dr. Cummings discusses how you can improve communication with persons living with dementia.

Dementia professionals use a variety of tools to determine decline and remaining function in Persons with Dementia. Specific tools help us give physicians, nurses and caregiving staff a better picture of what is happening to the resident. Assessing for depression, anxiety, ADLs, IADLs, pain, etc., keeps arguments out of the doctor’s office and helps us to assist families in understanding the disease process.

Pain causes an estimated 50% of the behaviors in a Person with Dementia. Learn how to assess, plan and provide for pain treatment.
