My friend Alyson Kuhn is co-author of the book I Hear You, about talking and listening to people with Alzheimer’s. Alyson and her co-author, gerontologist Jane Mahakian, provide great insights about how to avoid “talking down” to someone living with dementia.
There is no greater gift to a person than conversing with love and respect. In today's video, Alyson presents a “social solution” to entice her mother to eat lunch.
I say it over and over again: There's no one more important than the caregiver in the daily life of a frail person.
