La communication dans l’accompagnement en massokinésithérapie de la personne âgée atteinte de démence. Exemple d’un EHPAD en Bretagne

Abstract : Introduction : nowadays dementia is a public health priority. According to the World Health Organization the prevalence of people with dementia is increasing. Physiotherapists (PTs) must be prepared to take care of these patients with multiple comorbidities and communication disorders. Method : fourteen semi-directive interviews in a nursing home were conducted to identify the consequences of the dementia communication disorders on the rehabilitation and the professionals strategies to deal with them. Results : PTs are using internal resources (behavioral strategies, use of touch, research of adhesion, use of functional and playing activities) and external resources (collaboration with the healthcare team) to facilitate communication with patients and complete rehabilitation. Discussion : PTs feel helpless when they fail to create a relationship with patients affected by dementia. They doubt about their rehabilitation efficiency and its interest. In this way, it seems to be appropriate to reconsider the PTs’ place in the patient management in order to improve the quality of treatment on people with dementia.
