Many family caregivers do not know what to do when difficult behaviors occur. To assist the family caregiver in handling these behaviors, I have written… Dementia Behaviors for you.
An individual’s personality is the way a person views and approaches the world. It is their natural disposition. Some individuals are outgoing and always confident. Their positive attitude allows them to try new things and adapt . Other individuals are more introspective and reserved. These individuals may be more timid about change. They may feel uncomfortable around unfamiliar people.
Some people like to be organized and efficient. While others, are more relaxed, about life. Individuals also vary in their expression of emotions. As well a need for physical contact with others. As your family member living with dementia responds to their environment… their response will depend on their personality. Some will try to fight the disease and may experience a lot of frustration as a consequence. Others, after diagnosis, become depressed and increasingly withdrawn.
