9780124201323: Person-Centered Communication with Older Adults: The Professional Provider's Guide

Providers serving older adults face a growing problem. Older adults are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with service quality citing deficits in provider communication and relationship skills. The author argues this dissatisfaction is largely related to three widespread issues: ageism, use of professional jargon, and age-related changes in the older adult. To address these concerns, Dr. Storlie advocates adoption of an evidence-based, person-centered approach to communication.

The benefits of person-centered communication are many. They can increase older adult satisfaction with provider services, enhance mutual respect and understanding, improve accuracy of information exchanged, positively impact service outcomes, increase compliance with provider recommendations, and reduce the frustration and stress often experienced by both provider and older adult.

Rare to this genre, readers are introduced to several under-explored topics within the field of communication, along with methods for applying concepts from research findings into these topics to enhance the quality of interpersonal communication. Topics include the role of mental imagery in the communication process, the influence of neurocardiology on relationships, and controversial findings from research into quantum physics. The book concludes by highlighting progress made in narrowing the interpersonal communication gap and forecasts how communications-oriented technological advances might improve quality of life for 21st century older adults and the providers who serve them.

Utilizing interdisciplinary case studies to illustrate common problematic situations, this book provides detailed exercises that explain how providers can integrate person-centered communication into their practices to improve provider-older adult interactions. Written in a style designed to maximize learning, it helps providers find the information they need, understand what they read, and apply what they’ve learned to improve professional communication.

Person-Centered Communication with Older Adults is an essential guide for today’s healthcare professionals and other aging-services providers, and also for the educators who help to prepare the providers of tomorrow.



  • Presents a conceptual framework for understanding respect-based, person-centered communication
  • Teaches specific communication skills to aging services providers and educators to assist in effectively communicating with older adults
  • Includes numerous case studies to help in identifying common problematic situations and describing practical ways to integrate positive communication
  • One of the first books to integrate scientific, evidence-based findings with a personal approach that includes important new information on neurocardiology

Product Description:

As more and more "boomers" begin to age, the life experiences and expectations they bring with them will not only exert a strain on the current health care system, but on the various aging services providers as well. This book provides evidence-based recommendations that can help providers improve communication with older adults and that educators can use in training the next generation of providers. The first section in the book will present the existing issues and barriers that negatively impact communication between providers and older adults. The second section will then present the core solution to these issues-person-centered, respect-based communication. The last chapter will highlight progress made in narrowing the communication gap and forecasting how communications-oriented technological advances might improve the quality of life for 21st century older adults. * Presents a conceptual framework for understanding respect-based, person-centered communication* Teaches specific communication skills to aging services providers and educators to assist in effectively communicating with older adults* Includes numerous case studies to help in identifying common problematic situations and describing practical ways to integrate positive communication* One of the first books to integrate scientific, evidence-based findings with a personal approach that includes important new information on neurocardiology
