Certified Health Coach and Mental Health Advocate Deanna Blair sits down with Host John Chester to talk about what she’s learned working with families who are experiencing dementia first hand. People don’t wake up in their rocking chairs after 70-80 years and just decide to tear up the family. There is much more to it before it goes that far.
Deanna helps us understand why it’s important not to argue, but instead, use a technique called ‘validation’ to diffuse and deesclalate an irrational loved one. This will keep you from an argument neither of you want.
