Communication as a Tool for Challenging the Culture of Dementia Care | Adria Thompson
Join our hosts, Susi Stadler and Rachael Friedman, as they discuss communication for dementia care with our featured guest, Adria Thompson, the Founder of Be Light Care Consulting and a Dementia and Communications Consultant.
This is a refreshing conversation about dementia care focused on how we talk about dementia, as well as how we talk to people with dementia. Adria uses her expertise as a speech language pathologist and her everyday experience working with individuals with memory loss, to challenge stereotypes, improve communication, foster creativity, and provide support and inspiration to caregivers of all kinds. Embracing levity and humor, and with a deep well of compassion and honesty, Adria shines light on how we can be better, more-attuned caregivers and community members.
