How would I know? What can I do? How to help someone with dementia who is in pain or distress
If you are giving care or support to somebody with dementia, particularly as it advances and their ability to communicate reduces, you may find that they sometimes behave out of character. This can be displayed in different ways, including being agitated, frustrated, confused, wandering, anxious, pacing, calling out, aggressive or fearful. And if you can find out what the cause is, you might be able to do something about it.
