Abuse and the Dementia Patient


Abuse and the Dementia Patient gives positive strategies to help caregivers deal with the challenging behaviors of dementia in a way that helps reduce the potential for abuse, and provides productive outlets to the resident. The video discusses some of the most common potential abuse triggers, and offers suggestions to deal with them, including:

  • Combative-aggressive behavior
  • Catastrophic reactions
  • Wandering
  • Taking other residents possessions
  • Verbal abuse
  • Blatant dislike of certain staff members

Caregivers will learn how to individualize strategies for each resident by knowing their capabilities, limitations, and redirecting negative behaviors through humor, distraction, and gentle orientation.
