- If the person you care for is having difficulty accepting that they have the disease, or if they are unaware of their declining abilities , ask their family doctor to speak to them and explain the symptoms. They might accept the news better from a professional.
- If the person you care for has difficulty communicating their thoughts and feelings, pay attention to the non-verbal communications such as their gestures and facial expression. Respond to those feelings rather than the statement. This helps to create a loving and caring environment.
- Encourage the person you care for to involve themselves in arts and crafts. This is a great way for them to express themselves creatively, and to get out emotions they cannot express in words. Having a completed project will also give the person you care for a feeling of satisfaction and pride in themselves.
