5 Tips for Talking to Someone in Home Health Care

5 tips for talking to a patient:

  1. Reduce disturbances. Turn off any background noises, like the radio or TV.
  2. Have a one-on-one conversation. Too many people can create more confusion.
  3. Keep things simple. Stick to short precise sentences.
  4. Steer clear of quarrels. No one will gain anything.
  5. Just keep chatting, even if they can no longer reply.
