When Speech Is Gone: Nonverbal Communication in Dementia With Dr. Maggie Ellis
October 26, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 8:30 am EDTFree
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.

I Read where they may not be able to communicate but they still have feelings can you explain some more on that
I am a dementia patient that has loss the past but not the present and at 84, still lead an active life. It’s very difficult to remember what happen two week ago. My communication skills are still good but learning new skills in communicating might be useful in the future. Unfortunately, my wife will not be able to attend as she has another commitment. Allen
