CAREGIVER SAFETY: WHEN A BRAIN ILLNESS PATIENT BECOMES AGGRESSIVE
On this first show dealing with brain illness caregiving, my guest is Nataly Rubinstein, MSW, LCSW, who authored the award winning book: Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias; The Caregiver’s Complete Survival Guide. Nataly’s advice applies to any brain illness, including brain tumors and brain cancer. During this show, we’re going to address what to do and how to deal with a patient who is brain compromised and aggressive–before the situation gets out of hand or becomes deadly. What may trigger the patient’s aggressive behavior? You’ll hear suggestions to diffuse the situation with a focus on safety of the caregiver and care receiver.
