Intended Audience Group
Topic
Dementia, Personalised Care: Challenging Behaviour,
Aims and Objectives

Information for carers about aggression and dementia, what we mean by aggressive behaviour and why a person with dementia may behave aggressively.

As a person’s dementia progresses, they may sometimes behave in ways that are physically or verbally aggressive.

This can be very distressing for the person and for those around them. Looking at what causes this behaviour and being aware of the person’s needs can help to reduce this behaviour or make it easier to manage.
