As dementia progresses, communication will become more difficult for your loved one. It's important to pay attention to how you communicate as well. Allowing your loved one to talk with healthcare providers to the best of their ability will give them a sense of control, and allow the provider to assess their communication skills. Talking to someone with dementia can be frustrating, but some strategies in this section may help.
