Summary: The ability to communicate is essential to human interaction.  Among the cognitive impairments seen in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), language and communication impairments figure prominently, even in the earlier stages.  We also know that a major contributing factor to caregiver burden is communication breakdown between the caregiver and the person with AD.  Research shows that there are communication strategies that can be employed to enhance communication between a person with AD and their conversational partner and there are also group activities developed to enhance communication. We will review and discuss these strategies, making recommendations for optimizing communication with AD persons at different levels of severity.
