help with aggressive behavior, the following is suggested:
- Try to limit contact with
people who seem to disturb the person with Alzheimer's disease.
- As much as possible, try
to make changes in the home or in the bedroom. For example, cover mirrors or remove them if they
disturb the patient.
- Cover the windows or
lights that create shadows in the home or bedroom if the patient is
frightened or disturbed by the reflections of the windows or lights.
- Consult a doctor who
specializes in Alzheimer's disease to determine if there is some medical
reason that could be causing the aggression. For example, the person with Alzheimer's disease may
need a new medication or could be having a bad reaction to medication he
or she is taking. There are
also medications that can help to control aggressive behaviors. Consult with the doctor to find
the right medication for the patient.
