Alzheimer’s and Dementia: Prevention and Redirection Techniques Mobile App
By redirecting an individual with dementia, you may be able to avoid or delay outbursts and inappropriate behaviors.
How does it work?
Conversations and actions of a person with dementia can be redirected with gentle distraction or by suggesting a desired activity. Providing food, drink, or rest can be a redirection. Always offer suggestions for new activities or conversation topics in a reassuring tone. Never focus your redirection on reprimand or by saying “no” or “don’t do that”. The most important thing to remember is that each person is unique. Activities and conversations that successfully redirect one person may not work with someone else. The Alzheimer’s and Dementia: Prevention and Redirection Techniques mobile app covers Agitation/Restlessness, Sundown Syndrome/Sundowning, Aggressiveness, Wandering, Hiding and Hoarding/Paranoia and Suspiciousness, Catastrophic Reactions, Hallucinations, Delusions, Delusions and Inappropriate Activities.
