Dos and Don’ts of
Providing Dementia
Care
Miriam Galindo
Introduction
Dr. Miriam Galindo serves as a social worker and psychologist. Now working with patients
from her private practice in Irvine, California, Dr. Miriam Galindo spent her early career as
a certified nursing assistant helping people with a variety of conditions, including
dementia.
Here are several dos and don’ts of caring for a person with dementia:
- Do consider the cause of aggression.
Aggressive behaviors are fairly common among people with dementia. These behaviors
may be triggered by environmental factors, physical discomfort, or poor communication.
Instead of responding with anger, caregivers should stay calm and figure out what caused
the person to behave aggressively.
- Don’t take things personally.
People with dementia change from the way they once were. This means their relationship
with their caregiver will also change. Caregivers should remember that it’s not their fault
when a person with dementia becomes upset, frustrated, or angry.
Dementia Care
- Do be respectful.
When people develop dementia, their self-worth becomes
fragile. For this reason, caregivers should always be respectful
to people with dementia.
- Don’t overwhelm the patient.
Caregivers should not give people with dementia tasks that will
make them struggle. Questioning the person’s ability to
complete certain tasks may also be unhelpful.

Dos and Don’ts of Providing Dementia Care

  • 1. Dos and Don’ts of Providing Dementia Care Miriam Galindo
  • 2. Introduction Dr. Miriam Galindo serves as a social worker and psychologist. Now working with patients from her private practice in Irvine, California, Dr. Miriam Galindo spent her early career as a certified nursing assistant helping people with a variety of conditions, including dementia. Here are several dos and don’ts of caring for a person with dementia: - Do consider the cause of aggression. Aggressive behaviors are fairly common among people with dementia. These behaviors may be triggered by environmental factors, physical discomfort, or poor communication. Instead of responding with anger, caregivers should stay calm and figure out what caused the person to behave aggressively. - Don’t take things personally. People with dementia change from the way they once were. This means their relationship with their caregiver will also change. Caregivers should remember that it’s not their fault when a person with dementia becomes upset, frustrated, or angry.
  • 3. Dementia Care - Do be respectful. When people develop dementia, their self-worth becomes fragile. For this reason, caregivers should always be respectful to people with dementia. - Don’t overwhelm the patient. Caregivers should not give people with dementia tasks that will make them struggle. Questioning the person’s ability to complete certain tasks may also be unhelpful.
