Élaboration d'une plaquette d'information sur les troubles de la communication des patients atteints de démence type Alzheimer à l'usage des aidants

Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease is one primary source of illness in France, accounting for more than 225 000 cases per year. Cognitive symptoms are well-known, starting with memory lapses and speech disorders. Beyond such apparent functional problems, patient suffers from deep communication issues. Caregivers are first concerned by daily signs of incoherence and misunderstanding. In front of changing proximate person, the relationship withers and the communication may tend to disappear. We reflected on the interest to inform relatives about communication disorders. After literature analysis, our approach has led us to propose a preliminary survey on 20 caregivers. Our results demonstrated a lack of written information on communication disorders in this disease and the need to create a document on the subject. To solve this need, we have created an information brochure to demonstrate the relevance and legitimacy with a satisfaction survey. This document will be proposed to health professionals. And a thinking study is underway for a wider publication on the internet.
