Diffusing Potentially Hostile Situations
Dementia patients may become aggressive with others, even with their loved ones. Therefore, it is vital to have a professional around who can potentially diffuse a hostile situation, if one occurs. Private duty nurses that are referred by Lux Senior Care undergo stringent background checks and thorough evaluations to ensure they are equipped to handle aggressive patients. They are trained to recognize the signs of agitation and to de-escalate potentially volatile situations.
