“It is true that no matter the level of functioning, a person with dementia is able to read a caregiver’s affect and body language.” – P.K. Beville
As we work to protect ourselves and those we care for, we spend more time with masks on than without. Consider using a window mask. This provides COVID-19 protection while improving communication by allowing others to see your facial expressions and read your lips. Please consider wearing while caring for those living with dementia and/or hearing impairments.
