Coping with Behaviors – for Caregivers of Dementia Patients

The single most important thing you can do is learn the triggers to frustration or anger. Often a well-meaning caregiver will ask for something their loved one has always been able to do (info for taxes or feed the dog)—and the person with dementia may get uncharacteristically angry. Embarrassment or shame or terror is often beneath the expressed anger. Learn more about these symptoms and things you can do to help and protect your loved one, to care for yourself, and to support your relationship with the patient.
