Question and answer
1.3 describe how to support different communication abilities and needs of an individual with dementia who has a sensory impairment
[ We should: • demonstrate kindness and respect through our non-verbal communication • use gestures and visual prompts wherever possible • take our time, [ speaking clearly and slowly • try to make only one point at a time; pay attention to the person’s responses and simplify things further if we need to • do what we can to address any sensory impairments, such as checking that a hearing aid is working properly, or that glasses are clean • be at the same physical level as the person with dementia, using eye contact and touch if appropriate to the individual • use language and phrases that
are familiar to the individual • repeat and/or rephrase as necessary and ensure that the person has enough time to process what we’ve said. When we communicate well with a person with dementia we give the person the best chance of understanding us, despite their disability. ] ]
