Managing the Challenging Behaviors of Loved Ones with Memory Loss

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, progressive memory disorders affect the way people feel and act in addition to disrupting their memory and other cognitive skills. Many caregivers find the changes in a loved one’s behavior caused by Alzheimer's to be the most challenging and distressing effect of the disease. 

The chief cause of the behavioral symptoms is the progressive deterioration of brain cells. However, medications, environmental influences and some medical conditions also can cause these symptoms or make them worse.
