Alzheimer Disease and Aggression
Michael Stones, Michael Bell, Olga Mallot, Lee Stones, Pam Kalopack
This book is aimed to redress the lack of accessible information about Alzheimer disease and aggression. Whether readers are professional caregivers, such as home care practitioners, or informal caregivers, such as family members, they will find invaluable information in this book concerning frequent causes of agression, triggers and solutions. Becoming an effective caregiver means learning to understand the new and changing world of the person with Alzheimer disease and responding to that world with empathy, compassion, good humour, and creativity. This book tries to show caregivers how to interpret that world, and how to manage and communicate effectively with a person who inhabits it.
