More on Aggressive Behavior

Judith L London, PhD posted:
Hi Everyone,
Many of you are dealing with the onset of aggressive behavior. Often this is caused by your loved one feeling frightened, or confused, or or just plain not understanding what's going on. It sure is upsetting for you,.
Here are some reminders:
  1. Always agree, even if they are wrong, and you are right.
  2. Avoid arguing: reasoning doesn't work.
  3. Apologize even if it's not your fault.
  4. Don't take it personally even if it directed at you
Check out my tip on 'Sundowning " and you'll see more options.

Try to remain calm, which is easier said than done.

I'm with you,
Judy
