Coping with Alzheimer’s Anger

By , 6:00 pm on

Every year millions of Americans are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s patients experience a wide range of symptoms including memory loss, confusion, cognitive impairment and personality or behavioral changes. Displaying anger and violence is common among Alzheimer’s patients and is often the most difficult change for families to cope with.

Seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s disease sometimes treat even their most loved family members with anger and violence. Common behaviors are bad-mouthing, hitting, grabbing, kicking, screaming and throwing objects. Family members can have difficulty dealing with these personality and behavioral changes, because their loved one does not seem to be themselves any more. However, it is important that families understand the Alzheimer’s patient isn’t to blame and that this new-found anger and violence does not define the person’s character.
