Dealing with Aggression in Alzheimer's Patients

Aggressive episodes. Hostile outbursts. If you're caring for a loved one with dementia, you've probably experienced these. When they happen, what can you do to defuse them?

This woman leveraged her experience to develop a model to help herself and others navigate this difficult journey. She calls it BANGS, an acronym that describes ways to defuse aggressive episodes with people who are in the early, mid and even later stages of Alzheimer’s disease. This webinar explains the BANGS model, shows what may spark aggression in someone who lives with dementia of the Alzheimer's type, and explains what caregivers can do in response.
