  • Speak softly, move slowly, redirect the conversation if possible.

  • Try singing songs, reading to them or looking at old photos to distract them from what their agitated about.

  • Suggest a car ride to go get a treat.

  • If the weather permits, take a nice stroll around the neighborhood or near by park for some fresh air.

  • Most important, never argue with your loved one. Meet them in their reality.
