Communicating with a family member or friend who is elderly or disabled is essential to good care, strong bonds, and the person's well being. Some people are uncomfortable or unsure of how to proceed when talking to an elderly or disabled individual. Watch this video for tips and important information on communicating with the elderly.
As this video explains, being respectful, smiling, and paying attention to your body language and the other person's reactions are all key to having good communication. You should also be sure to use a good vocal volume, to articulate, and to work for a good first impression. Remembering these tips will help when you are talking about important issues with an aging family member, like assisted living arrangements.
