2. UCLA Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Video series
The Multicampus Programs in Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology (MPGMG) at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA created a series of videos on understanding and managing behaviours associated with dementia.
Every video scenario shows:
• The common response that family caregivers give in order to manage the behaviour change exhibited by their loved ones living with dementia;
• An expert’s explanation about the behaviour change, with tips to identify and minimise the triggers and suggestions for redirection; and
• The recommended response (incorporating the tips) that family caregivers can show instead to better manage the behaviour change.
This site also provides a Take Action worksheet that allows caregivers and care professionals to record what they can do to minimise the triggers of the behaviour changes.
