In module 10 we looked at challenges and coping strategies and identified that some of the coping strategies we use may be unhealthy.
In this module, we look at ways that we can respond in a positive way to someone living with dementia.
The relationship you have with the person you are caring for has a huge impact on both your quality of life and theirs, but by understanding how to respond positively, you can not only change your relationship with the person you are caring for but help to foster better relationships between the person and others around them. Relationships often change when someone has dementia and those who have dementia can easily become isolated. Carers can help by supporting existing relationships and help others to know how to react to the person they are caring for.
We aren’t born knowing how to communicate with a person with dementia—but we can learn. Improving your communication skills will help make caregiving less stressful and will likely improve the quality of your relationship with your loved one. Good communication skills will also enhance your ability to handle the difficult behaviour you may encounter as you care for a person with dementia.
