Reduce Aggressive Behavior Without Trauma

One of the main reasons people with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia end up in a memory unit or nursing facility is that they become aggressive or violent at home. Families feel as if they can no longer provide dementia care at home, even though they had planned to care for their loved one at home until the end of life.

However, aggression and violence do not need to become the norm as people progress through dementia. DementiaWise®, our best practice dementia care program, can help prevent aggression and violence before they ever start.

In this video, you will learn more about:

  • Why people with dementia become aggressive
  • How to prevent aggression and violence
  • How to respond safely to aggression or violence
  • Thoughts about calling 911 following aggressive or violent behavior
