Communicating with Difficult Behavior


Someone displaying difficult behavior could be a variety of reasons.  When difficult behavior is exhibited some suggestions are:

  • Find out what is causing the behavior
                  If so, see if there is a medical cause.  Is there treatment?
  • If the behavior is caused by dementia or mental illness, don't confront VALIDATE the feeling, if not the content
  •               Is it a recent behavior?


  • Redirect someone who is getting agitated
  • Eliminate distractions
  • Don't take the behavior personally if it is related to a disease process.  Often care receivers lash out most at those they trust the most.  They know that certain caregivers will take abuse and still be there.


  • Use "I" Messages
