At the later stage of AD where little activity other than listening is
possible, undoubtedly you are correct.  At less sever stages of the disease,
then you are probably correct if you include in your "talk" our exortations to
other usefule behavior, e.g. to "get up out of bed and interact with others on
the unit."

What type of "talk" are you thinking about?
