DemTalk - Who is it for? Why use DemTalk?
The effects of dementia can alter the way in which people interact on both sides of a conversation. Poor or damaged skills can lead to people getting the wrong idea about each other and may cause problems or bad feelings between them.
DemTalk is a toolkit for people living with dementia, for their family and friends, and for people who meet with them or take care of them.
DemTalk offers practical advice on communicating together.
It does this by pulling together the best advice available from professional experts in the field, and from other carers or people living with dementia, many of whom have contributed to its development.
