EmPoWereD Conversations

emPoWereD Conversations is an approach to communication in dementia care that is designed to help people living with dementia and their carers to:

  • Find ways to stay connected
  • Handle emotional stress
  • Navigate the day together

The approach focuses on the practical features of communication that help to give people with dementia an invitation to respond.



‘Been practising Invitation to Respond with my mom, much better and happier day’.

 “The course really made me reflect and think about ways of perhaps doing something very simple differently, which might actually have a greater benefit to my mum”
