RE:Responsive behaviours videos for familes
Hi Tim,
I would like to suggest the shifting focus video series. Shifting focus is designed for family, friends and co-residents of people who live with dementia and are acting in ways that create distress. This resource provides tips and tools to help improve the relationship with a person with dementia living with responsive or challenging behaviour.

The shifting focus video series includes:
  • Sundowning
  • Tips for visiting someone with dementia
  • Saying goodbye after a visit
  • Tips for communicating with people with dementia
  • Repetition
  • Wandering
  • Aggression
  • Agitation
  • "I want to go home"
  • Hallucinations and Paranoia
Shifting Focus is also available in a booklet and full guide.
