We now recognise that many Behaviours displayed by people with dementia indicate that they are in some form of distress. The Behaviour is an indication of discomfort, pain, anger, fear and other physical and emotional conditions. The brain damage from dementia often makes it impossible for people to communicate their needs through language, so we must pay close attention to their verbal or physical Behaviours to know how to help them.

Course Description:

As dementia develops, it can cause behaviour changes that can be confusing, upsetting or difficult for others to deal with, leaving carers, partners and family members feeling stressed and helpless. By learning to understand the meaning behind the actions, it can be easier to stay calm and deal effectively with behaviour that challenges when it arises.This course is also approved and accredited by our centre Advantage.

Course Aims:

The term "challenging behaviour" has been used to refer to the "difficult" or "problem" behaviours which may be shown by a person or adults.

Why does it happen?

The first point to make is that there is no simple answer to this question. It is helpful to remember, if the behaviour has just arisen or worsened, the possibility is that it reflects some kind of biological or emotional disturbance.

Unfortunately, challenging behaviour is not like an infection which can be treated by a short-term course of antibiotics. In many cases there is no "magic bullet", all change take some time (especially where the behaviour is well established and enduring).

Functional analysis:

A functional assessment of behaviour may provide some answers, or at least some theories, about the causes of an individual’s behaviour. A functional analysis aims to shed light on the particular needs which a person gets met through their behaviour.

Is the person trying to – ‘Seek or Avoid, Attention or Stimulus’?

Conditions that cause Distress Behaviours

“Understand the message and engage with the need that is not being met” It is widely recognised that most distress behaviours in an elderly person is an attempt at communicating ‘Unmet needs’
