Dementia Care: Aggressive Behaviors

This DVD identifies many of the root causes of aggression, while giving practical ways caregivers can help to reduce aggressive behavior.

The DVD covers:

  • signs of agitation
  • aggression triggers (and how staff may unwittingly contribute to them)
  • the importance of allowing residents to communicate back
  • techniques to maintain safety when an aggressive episode occurs.

As it promotes a “helping hand” versus a “forcing hand” approach to care, this DVD will teach staff better ways to approach residents, and remain respectful of their personal space when providing assistance.
