Cognitive communication refers to the ability an individual has to orient themselves to a situation, make connections within reality, and perform higher order tasks – including managing money and a daily schedule. People with cognitive decline may communicate in a disorganized way or may otherwise function differently in interpersonal interaction due to an inability to sufficiently focus or remember information.
