This course examines historic attitudes and language that describe behaviours expressed by people living with dementia.
It helps participants to recognise behaviours as a response, and also explores how we ourselves react to periods of distress. When it’s difficult to communicate with words, people with dementia will use other methods to tell us what they need. We all use behaviour to communicate. Think about it. What are we communicating when we slam a door or burst into tears? Quite simply, we are communicating how we feel. No complicated words needed! People with dementia are no different to you and I. Everything we do communicates something. Understanding behaviour of a person with dementia has to be our main aim.
