Dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease, can be difficult for older adults, their caregivers and family members to manage. While there are many difficult behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia, aggressive behaviors are among the most challenging. As NYC Elder Abuse Center guest blogger, Bryan R. Hansen, PhD(c), MSN, RN, FNE-A, points out in his piece, aggressive behaviors are common for older adults who have dementia and often meet the definition of abuse. In addition, caregivers coping with challenging behaviors are at an increased risk to respond in an abusive manner, which can create situations where both individuals may perpetuate and/or experience elder abuse.
