AUGUST LIVE VIRTUAL WEBINAR
Difficult Behaviors in Dementia
We all know that the best way to care for people with dementia is to anticipate their needs, show them love, keep them engaged with things that they like. However we also know that 40 to 70% of them will have behavioral changes related to dementia causing delusions paranoia aggression and agitation. Again the best intervention is by showing love, taking care of their needs, and keeping them engaged with things they enjoy. But what happens when that’s not enough?
Some advocates suggest that all agitation is unmet needs, or somehow the family failed. I have seen myself that even the most loving family cannot prevent agitation delusion and paranoia that is just part of dementia for a lot of people. Find out what works, what doesn’t and a step-by-step approach to help you and your family get through it.
