    Using music to spark memories can help. It is a nice way to reminisce with the person with Alzheimer’s. LifeSongs recordable scrapbooks let you tell a person’s life story through 12 pages of photos. Then you can record 12 of their favorite songs (or your/their voice). It’s a multi-sensory approach that promotes communication. Learn more or order at LifeSongs.info.

      That’s a fantastic resource and help. I’ve seen some of these in the nursing homes around my area. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

    Are these tips a “one size fits all” approach? It does not address the issue whether all people, despite differences in educational levels, verbal abilities, and income, have the same communication problems when they have AD? So if you have a large vocabulary and strong verbal skills as a young adult, will you lose these abilities at the same rate as someone without a high school education?
