Dementia and Agitated Behaviours (bitesize)

 

What I liked about this Dementia Help Sheet (link below): 

  • I like this sheet as it as most of the causes identified as likely to alter behaviour have the same impact on me!  Turns out that people with dementia are human too… 

 

Key points I extracted from this Help Sheet: 

  • Keep an eye on tiredness 
  • Is the medication ok? 
  • Defensive behaviour means their world is threatened…   
  • Are they humiliated?  Ignored? Patronised? 
  • Are they ill? I mean, another illness. 

 

What I do: 

  • I back off and make sure their environment (again) is safe so that they cannot hurt themselves. 
  • I breathe. 
  • I try to work out what is wrong.  If I get this wrong, I am in no doubt I will know it pretty quickly.  In this case, start again, gently. 
  • If I cannot work out what is wrong, I go for the displacement strategy.  At least it makes me feel I am doing something.  It sometimes even work! 

 

Author of this blog (Transparency):   

  • I work for CPR Global Tech and, for personal reasons, like many people, I have had to learn a lot about dementia the hard way.  As there is a natural forum on our website, it makes sense for me to share info here.
