Abstract

Many behavioral issues accompany dementia. These may be associated with psychosis and/or mood problems, such as depression, anxiety, apathy, and irritability—all of which have been defined in previous chapters. Some patients have minimal bothersome behaviors, and some will have many. In either case, it helps to have an understanding of these, as well as when, if, and HOW to intervene.
