2019-07-1900:05:47

 How Do You Communicate? What do your non-verbal signs convey?Most of the time, I go to a patient, I come in, I show my verbal and non-verbal signs and it really works!What are these verbal signs that we're talking about?V.E.R.B.A.LV - VOICEWhat's your voice?

Are you engaging or connecting with that person?R- REACTIVEAre you being reactive? We don't want to be reactive, we want to be PRO-ACTIVE.In the  Philippines, when I was working as a Medical Representative, we have this conference and we called it PRO-ACT.Basically, we are being pro-active with the plans that we have in life. So, we want to be pro-active instead of reacting.When we are talking to a person and we don't agree with their opinions, we try to be reactive. We don't want to be like that, we want to be pro-active.B- BODY LANGUAGEAre you putting your hands on your hip? Is your browse raising?

  I attended a certification course called Certified Online Training Professional.One of the Speaker there said, “Tell me I Forget, Teach me I Remember, Involve me, I Understand” something like that.Same thing with our Dementia patient. And I just realized that, if you’re telling a patient or a person that has Dementia and you’re telling, you’re telling, you’re telling that, they’ll forget that.Teach them, they’ll remember it but if you involve them in the activity, involve them in the staff that you’re trying to do they’ll understand it. I know some patients can’t understand it because they have problems in Dementia, but in general, in life, this is what we need to do anyway.If you’re telling somebody a procedure, they’ll probably forget that. But if you teach them how to do it, what to do it, they’re probably going to remember it. When you involve them and let them do it on themselves they going to understand that. And that’s the purpose of this group, this page, wanting for you to understand Dementia, and that is why it’s called MisUnderstanding Dementia.And I want you to understand more, not only the dementia process, not only the dementia disease but understand yourself more.“Tell me I Forget, Teach me I Remember, Involve me, I Understand”!Get the Caregiver's Freedom Journal here.Enroll in our new course - MisUnderstanding Dementia here.
