  • Consider the capacity to take on new information, new relationships or new tasks if you are feeling angry with somebody or something, and develop strategies that might overcome this.
  • Understand that anger in itself may be a normal response, and recognise the need for it to be expressed in a manner that does not result in physical or psychological harm to the person with dementia or those around them.
  • Recognise the possibility of physical and psychological pain in the person with dementia, and its potential contribution towards the expression of anger.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the key drugs that are used to ‘manage’ people with dementia who are angry, and identify alternative strategies to defuse angry outbursts, in view of the current debate around chemical restraint.
