Communication can be complicated by dementia, both expressively and receptively. We will zoom out to examine ways we communicate with people living with dementia without words, including tone of voice, body posture, and facial cues. We will also explore behavioral communication, what a person living with dementia may be trying to tell us without words.
This course will review basic concepts of dementia, including the diagnostic process and available treatment options. We will then explore changes in communication-related to each stage of dementia and best practices for supporting these changes.
This course qualifies for Illinois IDFPR license renewal requirements for all IDFPR licensees.
