Coping with changes in behaviour - Dementia Australia

  • Sunshine Hospital 176 Furlong Road St Albans VIC 3021 (map)

Content:

  • How dementia in the brain impacts on a person’s behaviour

  • How to determine which behaviours to worry about and address

  • What factors may trigger a behaviour in a person with dementia

  • The problem-solving approach and how it can be applied to understand and better respond to the behaviour

  • Where to find ongoing support
