COVID-19 Messaging Boards for Dementia Care
This document includes a variety of messages for individuals living with dementia. Many do not understand what is going on, or remember what you have told them.
For example, “What is COVID-19?”, “Why do I look like this?” (for staff to use if they are wearing a mask), “Why we are doing things differently, and why family are not visiting”. The file is a word document, providing you a template to make changes to suit your needs – and your environment.
