When Talking to Someone with Dementia, Don’t Argue – Agree.

By Gran13

When talking to a person with any kind of dementia:

Agree with the patient rather than argue. Distract rather than try to reason. No one is perfect so try not to shame that person.  Reassure rather than lecture . Avoid saying; ‘Do you remember?’ Reminisce rather.

My late husband remained my best friend even after he became ill. He was a man full of love and quiet wisdom who accompanied and supported me throughout the ups and downs of our lives. t was my turn to take care of him.
