Managing Alzheimer's Patient Behavior: Managing Family Care for Alzheimer's Patients (4 of 6)

Alzheimer's disease and other dementias affect the way seniors think and feel and subsequently how they behave. You may see behaviors from your loved ones that are uncharacteristic or even odd.

Some common challenging behaviors include refusal, delusions, aggression, false-acquisitions, wandering, agitation and repetition. The behaviors that need to be managed are ones that put you or your loved one's physical and emotional well being at risk.

    Wife with dementia cared for in her home by her husband me her husband. In doing so found out something about aggression that's not mentioned, perhaps not known. Aggression is ther way of commununication, when can't talk normally. They want to tell you they don,t like their situation. Babies cry for same reason and we hold and comfort them, same for as patients, never restrain or ignore them. Provide understanding and comfort. This works! Feel free to contact me if you choose. ,
