Editorial Reviews

In this unique DVD, nursing staff introduce actual patients demonstrating a wide range of language deficits associated with the different stages of Alzheimer’s disease.

Dr. Peter Rabins, engaging directly both with staff and residents, gathers information on the communication challenges presented by the patients and works with staff to develop communication strategies. Together they identify ways to establish both verbal and non-verbal communication links with the patient and provide guidelines on how to enter the world of the Alzheimer’s patient by “learning the patient’s language.”

Topics covered include: how to establish a communication link; assessing a person’s comprehension level; determining if a person is able to respond to verbal cues; learning strategies to simplify communication; using reassuring tones; employing non-verbal communication including facial expression and touch; and finally, appreciating that talking, even without content, is a way of connecting.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.'s standard return policy will apply.
