We all need to feel valued, understood and to believe that what we communicate to others matters and people living with dementia are no different. While people living with dementia will lose a number of communication abilities during the early, middle, and late stages of the disease communication remains possible at every stage. It is our responsibility to help people with dementia to compensate for their disability by understanding what needs changing around them. This will help focus on their strengths, qualities and life experiences and not just on loss and dependency.

This webinar will consider various elements for successful person-centred communication approaches with case examples throughout the various stages of the disease to illustrate practical intervention strategies.
