How to manage difficult behaviors resulting from dementia
Some of the greatest challenges of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia are the personality and behavior changes that often occur with these conditions. Here are some strategies to help you manage difficult behaviors from some who has dementia. Consult a physician: Sometimes medication side effects, pain and even an untreated infection can cause a sudden change in behavior. That is why it is important to make sure there is not an underlying medical problem that is bringing on your loved one’s behavioral problems. Find the root of the problem: People with dementia use behavior as a way to communicate their needs. It is their way of saying, “Stop, I need something.”
