                         DO NOT ARGUE

 

  • Approach a Person Living with Alzheimer’s from the Front
  • Address them by Their Name to get Their Attention
  • Make Eye Contact & Smile
  • Meet Them at Their Level; Stand , Sit or Kneel
  • Only One Person Should Address Them at a Time
  • Keep the Conversation Simple; Use Short Sentences or Phrases
  • Be Patient; Give Them Time to Respond
  • Include Them in the Conversation
  • Concentrate on Their Facial Expressions & Body Language
  • ABOVE ALL DO NOT ARGUE; You Can Not Make the Person Living with Alzheimer’s Understand…. They Do Not Live in Our Reality…. They Live in Theirs
