Connecting with Older Adults: Communicating Effectively

Presented by Sheree T. Kwong See, PhD, Alberta Senior Advocate, Office of the Seniors Advocate

We are well aware that seniors are one of the fastest growing demographics in Alberta. As a service provider, it is important to understand how to best connect with older adults in a meaningful way.

In this session, Dr. Sheree Kwong See will outline how language use changes in older age and why. Participants will have an opportunity to apply what they learn about the processing basis of age differences and will leave with tips and guidelines to effectively communicate with/to older adults in their daily work.
