Family meetings
You can share your perspectives and reactions to the changes in the person with Alzheimer’s disease. The counselor can help you each to discuss how these changes have affected you, other members of the family, and your relationships. Differences in understanding of the illness and its implications for care can be resolved. You can talk about how you would like family members to be involved in caregiving. With the guidance of the counselor, family members will all be able to communicate more effectively and supportively with each other – differences can be expressed constructively, and mutually acceptable solutions identified. The strategies and skills developed in the family meetings will continue to be useful after the formal family meetings have concluded.
