Thanks to Tracey Maxfield for this quote. These are probably the exact same reasons people with dementia appear upset or ‘ANGRY’!
Except, they get blamed for it, the pathology of their dementia is seen as the root cause, hence they get restrained, physically or chemically, for their so-called BPSD!!!
Hence our #BanBPSD campaign…
My only modification to this Top 10 Reasons Kids Get Angry, when applying it to people with dementia would be to add to number to 1. – They’re tired, hungry, under stimulated or overstimulated.
