Behavior Modification: How Caregivers Deal with Challenging Behaviors

Sometimes, disease can cause changes in a patient’s behavior. And no matter how much people try to associate this shift with the illness, one can’t help but get affected by these actions. As someone appointed to take care of them, one begs the question: how do caregivers deal with this issue?

Being a family caregiver is no easy chore. Simply because they’re providing help and care to a family member doesn’t take any weight off their shoulders. This might even unconsciously add a certain amount of pressure on the caregiver. After all, they’re providing care to someone they’re familiar with for most, if not all, of their life. They’re expected to know how to deal with them and be aware of the nuances in their behavior.
