Description:

This study examines the effects of behavioral management training in reducing the occurrence of aggressive behavior among elderly patients diagnosed with dementia. Forty-five involuntary elderly patients in a residential care center were observed by certified nurses assistants (CNA) and licensed practical nurses as to the number of aggressive behaviors displayed before nurses completed a month of behavioral training and after completing training. Results show no significant differences in the occurrence of aggressive behavior in Pre and Post training.

From the Paper:

"Few would argue that our elderly are a primary concern when special care is needed. Special care often results in the need for outside assistance such as nursing care residential centers or what is commonly known as nursing homes for the elderly. Unfortunately many of the elderly residents in these residential care facilities are diagnosed with dementia making care a challenge. Dementia is classified as an impairment disorder effecting the vascular or neurological structures of the brain. In same case, dementia is treatable as in cases with brain tumors or dementia due to a metabolic cause."
