Peter and Daughter

Welcome to this week

This week we will explore communication for people with dementia, looking at some of the difficulties they might experience and how to overcome these challenges.

We will examine how communication problems may cause some of the challenging behaviour shown by Peter in the nursing home and discuss solutions.

We will then explore some methods for preventing anger and aggression, and what to do if a person does become angry.
