Ask & Answer Picture Cards are a powerful communication tool.
Using the Ask & Answer Picture Cards carers can connect meaningfully and help someone with dementia feel understood and listened to when they are given the right verbal and visual prompts.
The cards help carers to have simple and meaningful conversations about what matters most to the person such as how they feel about:
• The relationships around them
• Their care and support
• Activities and daily life
• The food and dining
• Their general sense of comfort and security
The Ask & Answer Picture Cards are an effective tool for health and social care practitioners to deliver good person-centred outcomes. The enjoyment of using pictures to supplement or replace words is a simple and effective way of engaging people and having a conversation that matters.
The kit includes a self- learning pack, teaching film and set of cards to help carers engage with clients about their care experience using guided questions to explore feelings and provide feedback.
