Dementia Patients Angry

Understanding what triggers anger and aggression in your loved one with dementia will help you avoid those triggers and prevent aggressive behavior. Anger prevention and coping strategies will make dementia care much easier for you and your loved one alike.

Anything from boredom to over-stimulation can trigger anger in a person with dementia. Anger in your loved one with dementia can be related to:

  • physical triggers such as exhaustion, discomfort, or soreness,
  • cognitive triggers such as confusion (disorientation, mixed up memories, sudden transitions, etc.).
  • emotional triggers that usually involve feelings of loneliness, sadness, over-stimulation, or monotony. Studies show that anger issues usually intensify the more severe dementia becomes.
