Dementia Care Staten Island Service - How to Care for People with this

Condition

People who suffer from mid to late stage dementia can be quite difficult to

handle. Dementia patients can be quite unpredictable as their mental faculties

are no longer as sharp as they used to be. Their feelings of paranoia, anger,

sadness, fear, and confusion can often result in aggressive, oppositional and

sometimes violent reactions from them. Caring for a dementia patient is a lot

harder than it looks because they are not like your average patients. Sometimes

sending them to a dementia care Staten Island service centre is the best thing to

do as these facilities are well equipped to handle patients with this condition.

One of the hardest and most upsetting aspects of caring for someone with

dementia is communication difficulties. It is frustrating for the patient, the

caregiver, and the patient’s loved ones. Although it can be a bit difficult to truly

understand why dementia patients act the way that they do, the only viable

explanation or answer can be attributed to the condition that they are suffering

from. Yes, it can be irritating to suddenly get yelled at for no reason at all by

someone with dementia, but the truth is you really can’t fault them for it since

they’re practically helpless against this condition.

Familiarizing yourself with some of the common situations that take place

whenever you are around someone who has dementia can prepare you anytime

your loved one does or says something shocking. One of the keys to responding to

aggression brought about by dementia is to try and identify the cause of the

person’s aggressive behaviour.

Ask yourself what could possibly be causing your loved one to act in this manner?

Try to make sure that they will not be putting themselves or anybody else in

danger with their actions. Be sure to speak and respond to their aggressiveness in

a calm manner as lashing out at them with aggression will only make it worse.

Never try to restrain your loved one unless you are left with absolutely no choice

because this can cause them to become physically violent towards you. You can
