Behaviors like catastrophic outbursts and agitation often result from inability to communicate, need for emotional security, sensory issues like overstimulation, or staff responses that do not support purposeful and meaningful engagement.  Behaviors in persons with dementia often go unaddressed because providers lack strategies to address these or use interventions not based on the evidence and therefore not effective.  In this session, evidence-based behavior management and intervention strategies related to pain management, communication, emotional/cognitive state, sensation, agitation, and wandering are examined to help providers reduce unwanted behaviors without relying on medications.  The research related to routine, resident preference, and meaningful engagement in activities is discussed along with their impact on activities of daily living (ADL) performance.  Using a person-centered approach, participants will learn how to adapt activities to match the client’s functional level, modify routines to enhance occupational performance, and environment-based interventions to promote a home-like atmosphere, and foster active engagement at all stages of the disease process.
