There are many challenges in providing care to someone with dementia. During this session, we will focus on the common causes of challenging behaviors related not only to the disease process, but to the environment, nursing personnel, and visitors. We will explore how to understand the person’s reality and discuss the five main strategies to use when approaching and caring for someone with dementia.
