Companion Cards

$10.00

Enjoy the simple gift of this unique and helpful communication tool while growing awareness of what it means to be living with dementia. Teepa has been sharing the value of companion cards for years, encouraging care givers and family members to communicate "in the moment" subtle explanation of unpredicted words or deeds. Dementia affects both the limbic system and the pre-frontal cortex which can cause those affected by dementia to be impulsive or expressive with opinions they may have otherwise have kept to themselves. Doing the best with what they have, these cards advocate for someone who is living with limits in comprehension and communication. These business sized cards come with a plastic carry case and are a quick and helpful solution for care partners to use when unexpected or awkward situations arise. Order includes: 50 cards and 1 card carrying case.

Front of card reads: I'd like you to know my companion is living with a form of dementia. Please know their behavior and ability is a result of brain change due to the effects of dementia. I apologize in advance if something said or done might surprise or distress you

Sincerely,

Back of card: Learn more from dementia care expert Teepa Snow about changes that can be expected when someone is living with dementia. www.teepasnow.com

    Perfect way to tell others about the dementia and spare the PWD from feeling embarrassed. They also increases awareness to not judge too quickly. I will be ordering more!

    the companion cards are fantastic! when we go out in public I quietly give one to the employee so when my father-in-law starts a conversation that is totally off topic they understand. they are so kind and patient because they understand he is living with dementia!!
