Dementia & Communications
This is a really interesting discussion on Dementia and Communication.
Michael Rosen explores how to communicate with people with dementia. Alison Wray offers advice, such as to respond to the feeling behind the words rather than the words themselves.
Alison is a Research Professor in Language and Communication at Cardiff University. She is renowned for her work on formulaic language. She is also interested in language profiling, evolution of language and psycholinguistic theory.
