Tip of the Week 02/24/03

Trying to communicate with a person who has AD can be a challenge. Both understanding and being understood may be difficult. Choose simple words and short sentences and use a gentle, calm tone of voice. Try to avoid talking to the person with AD like a baby or talking about the person as if he or she weren’t there. Allow enough time for a response and be careful not to interrupt.
