Redirection Strategies

Individuals with Alzheimer’s can exhibit challenging behaviors, which require redirection: striking out, yelling, grabbing, de-robing, etc. Here are some techniques that can be utilized to get back on track. It is important to understand that these behaviors are not personal and a result of the disease process.

  • Take a calm and confident approach
  • Empathize and do not argue
  • Smile, make eye contact, apply light touch and a relaxed posture
  • Ask questions
  • Introduce alternative activities
