film stillWhen people with Alzheimer's become agitated and aggressive, they may be trying to communicate with the world outside their dementia. Lashing out may often be their only recourse for expressing their very real fear and anxiety. Through real-life patient encounters, this video shows appropriate and compassionate techniques which can prevent or diffuse patients' anxiety, agitation and aggression.

Also available on DVD as part of the Alzheimer's Care Series
