Your loved one’s agitation and anxiety can upset the entire family. Anxiety is experiencing worry, uneasiness or nervousness, while agitation is the physical result of that anxiety. You loved one may be restless, fidgety, unable to sleep well, unable to concentrate on tasks and may pace (walk to the point of exhaustion). Some triggers could be large crowds or the seemingly smallest things, such as a book out of place. When you understood your loved one’s trigger, you can understand what’s causing agitation and anxiety.
