SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT

Socialization in dementia care can mean going out and meeting people or hanging out with friends.

By Bob DeMarco
Alzheimer’s Reading Room

I am not using the clinical definition of socialization here. Instead, I am describing a continuing process that leads to the establishment of norms of behavior and communication in the Alzheimer’s disease environment.1

I think most Alzheimer’s caregivers understand that the Alzheimer’s patient can benefit from being in social settings and engaging in communication.
