Addressing Behavioral Challenges

Hello everyone,

The UCLA Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Program has developed a set videos addressing common behavioral challenges for caregivers. The brief videos first show a “typical” approach by a caregiver, then some discussion by an expert, and then show the “preferred approach”  of the same scenario and a few more tips. The videos are free to use and can be accessed at the following link:

Here is the list of the behaviors that are covered under the caregiver training videos:

·  Aggressive Language/Behavior

·  Agitation and Anxiety

·  Depression/Apathy

·  Hallucinations

·  Home Safety

·  Refusal to Bathe

·  Refusal to Take Medications

·  Repetitive Behaviors

·  Repetitive Phone Calls

·  Repetitive Questions

·  Sexually Inappropriate Behaviors

·  Sleep Disturbances

·  Sundowning

·  Wandering
