Communicating It’s important to keep talking to one another. The person that is being cared for may have trouble expressing themselves and this is perfectly normal. However, talking about the diagnosis can be useful for both the person living with Alzheimer’s disease and their carer. Learning about the condition together and knowing what to expect can be an important way to help plan for the future. Confide in close family and friends you trust. Many people find it useful to share their thoughts and feelings with others who are in a similar position. Ask your healthcare professional for more information and if they can put you in touch with a local support group.
