When communicating with someone with dementia, remind family and friends to:

• Call or video chat at times of day when the person with dementia is at his or her best.
• Be calm and quiet. Don’t use a loud voice or talk to the person as if he or she were a child.
• Respect the person’s personal space, and don’t get too close.
• Encourage a two-way conversation for as long as possible. Be patient when someone has trouble finding the right words or putting feelings into words. You can help them but try not to speak for them.
• Try not to take it personally if the person does not remember you, is unkind, or gets angry. He or she is acting out of confusion.
