Caregivers’ 10 Commandments

When communicating with older seniors and especially people with memory impairments due to Alzheimer’s or other dementia, it’s always good to keep these “Caregivers’ 10 Commandments.”

Always…
AGREE—Never Argue
REDIRECT—Never Reason
DISTRACT—Never Shame
REASSURE—Never Lecture
REMINISCE—Never say, “Remember”
REPEAT—Never say, “I already told you”
SAY, “DO WHAT YOU CAN”—Never say, “You can’t”
ASK—Never Command
ENCOURAGE AND PRAISE—Never Condescend
REINFORCE—Never Force
