Abstract

This project focuses on how context can be structured to help older communicators in the early stages of dementia. Hearing and vision loss in aging, as well as changes in cognition, can challenge communication. The use of supportive context can offset difficulties to some extent. This study examines how different contexts facilitate or disrupt communication of older adults in the early stages of dementia.
