Mise en place d'un atelier de communication autour de la photographie avec des patients présentant une maladie d'Alzheimer

Abstract : The patients severely affected by Alzeihmer within the specialized units frequently display disorders in their behavior; this is obviously due to a cognitive decline. They shut themselves away and can show themselves anxious and aggressive. The non-medicinal intervention proposed by the speech therapist on these patients’communication seems to be a solution to this problem. This intervention can’t be effective without a coordination between the patients, the family and the nursery staff. We here talk about the speech therapist taking the patients in hand “ecologically”. The speech therapist analyses the verbal and non-verbal communication of the different actors in a pragmatic way and lead the family and professional helpers in their exchanges with the patients. The difficulties for these patients to remember, plan, alter their self esteem and as result their life comfort. This preliminary case study on five patients proposes the use of photography as a non verbal mediator, it will favour the patient’s renewal in his identity feeling. The experimental initiated protocol shows positive qualitative results for this kind of aid with this population and offer the possibility to repeat that experiment on a larger scale.
