I lately find that husband with ALZ finds it difficult to express his thoughts. Can I as a caregiver provide any help. He is at present in a care facility and I spend a day with him once a week. Thanks VK
The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
However, do realize that this inability to express his thoughts is part of the disease. You, as a caregiver, don't want to frustrate him or erode his self-esteem. Trying to coach someone with AD can be hard.
One thing you may try is to have pictures of things he may talk about and if he's grasping for words (or someone's name) make a guess and show him a picture. If that's right, it may relax him enough to continue.
Do try to check with a speech therapist just in case a professional can help.
