Alzheimers Patients Being Manipulative

Are Alzheimer’s Patients Manipulative?

It’s not uncommon for caregivers of patients with Alzheimer’s to feel like they’re being manipulated. Many of the behaviors of dementia can seem like manipulation. The caregivers often feel as though their loved one is intentionally trying to manipulate them or uses selective memory to get what they want. It may seem impossible to believe anything else because their behavior is so unusual.

While it may seem like intentional manipulation, deceitfulness, or selective memory, people with dementia usually aren’t able to think through the complexities required to manipulate those around them. That being said, as they begin to lose their memory, patients with Alzheimer’s will often fill in the gaps with “lies” or change parts of the story because they’re unable to remember what actually happened.

Inappropriate Behavior

With Alzheimer’s, it is the short-term memory that goes first. But there are patients who have mixed dementia and different parts of their brain is affected. If a patient has frontotemporal dementia, then the area of the brain that filters behavior is affected. As a result, the patient may do or say things that are socially inappropriate. Those with loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s often describe their behavior as that of a child.

Alzheimer’s patients lose cognitive skills in addition to their memory loss which can make it difficult for them to think logically. In early stages, they also realize they are losing parts of their memory which can add to their frustration and cause emotional outbursts as well. While they likely aren’t being intentionally manipulative, their behavior can be frustrating and even hurtful.

Are You Having Trouble Caring For Someone With Alzheimer’s?

It’s important, when caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s, to practice empathy and try not to take it personally when they experience hurtful behavior from their loved one. Try to avoid arguments and seek help if you continue having difficulty with your loved one.

Getting your Ex boyfriend/girlfriend back is possible.
Am so excited to share my testimony of a spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn’t even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Excellent can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him on WhatsApp and told him my problems and he told me what to do and I did it and he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr.Excellent If you have any problem contact him and I guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. you can WhatsApp him at +2348084273514 ,or email him at: Excellentspellcaster@gmail.com ,His Website:https://drexcellentspellcaster.godaddysites.com
