Talking to loved ones with dementia

According to the NHS there are currently 850,000 people in the UK who are living with dementia. Conversations with loved ones with dementia can sometimes be difficult to understand which can be upsetting for family members. Yet, the more you speak with your loved one, the more you’ll be able to adjust and change what you say to continue to have meaningful and thoughtful conversations.
