Managing Alzheimer's Patient Behavior (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.
