When it comes to Alzheimer’s disease or any of the other related dementias a major area of concern is how to manage difficult behaviors.From depression and mood swings to anger and aggression all caregivers, whether family or professional, continue to look for effective ways to manage and treat difficult behaviors while also understanding their underlying cause.
