As Alzheimer’s and dementia progress, people may lose their ability to speak. It can be difficult to find ways to communicate and connect — but it is still possible. On Wednesday, October 26th, we’ll speak to Dr. Maggie Ellis, a professor at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, about adaptive interaction — a communication approach that researchers are applying to help people connect to loved ones living with advanced dementia.
Join us for a Being Patient: Brain Talks Live Talk on Wednesday, October 26th at 8:00 a.m. ET and read more about Dr. Ellis’s work in adaptive interaction for dementia here.
