Communication Cards for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living with dementia

Regular price $0.00

Tax included.

Designed and illustrated by Samantha Campbell, a proud Dagoman woman from Katherine, and co-designed with representatives from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, the 58 cards depict images that have meaning to an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person living with dementia.

The inability for a person with dementia to communicate what they want or need can be frustrating for both them and care staff. For an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person living with dementia, the communication barrier with those providing care can be greater due to language and cultural differences.

These illustrated cue cards can assist care staff to understand the care needs of the person and create opportunities to build trust and security whilst reducing anxiety. The ability to make connection and engage with the person can also reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation.
