  • Do not panic—remain calm with relaxed body language.

  • If your loved one comes out for breakfast without their pants on it may not be a sexual gesture—direct them to the bedroom and help dress them.

  • Stand near the bathroom with your loved one’s clothing while they get dressed.

  • Make sure clothing is easy to get on and off.

  • If your loved one is making an inappropriate comment—redirect them.

  • Look for new things to do together.

  • Give your loved one more attention.

  • Sitting or kneeling on the same level may reduce fidgeting.
