Have questions as you work to provide care to an aging loved one who suffers from dementia? Struggling with communicating with your loved one with memory loss?
You are not alone. Dementia is truly the elephant in the room. Even though we have all heard that the number of people who suffer from memory loss is growing rapidly, it is a totally different story when that person is a friend or a loved one.
We can all tell stories about broken relationships, the sad case of the “friendly stranger” who takes advantage of the person with dementia and/or the frustration felt when “they just don’t remember”.
Your stories can be different and your relationships can be rewarding even in the face of memory loss. Diana can provide you with information about memory loss coupled with communication techniques that maintain dignity and self-worth for all involved. She stands ready to help.
Looking for help as you work with a loved one OR friend who is suffering from dementia? Talking with them can be challenging as you attempt to remind them of short term memory topics or issues. Diana’s tools have the potential of reconnecting you with the person you may have felt was lost to you because of their memory loss.
Realizing that dementia simply means memory loss, usually of recent events, will empower you to talk successfully with them. Diana’s approach, provided in her book and reinforced through her DVD, provides you with real-time examples of successful conversation techniques that work!
