Abstract

Clinically, nursing has long recognized dementia behaviors--agitation, aggression, wandering, and general confusion--to be a significant patient problem as well as a major stress to nursing staff and caregivers. Although there is no cure, much can be done to improve these patients' daily care and, ultimately, their quality of life.
