Find the Message

A valuable lesson I learned in my decades of dementia care:
Many so-called "behavioral symptoms of dementia" can be alleviated simply by meeting human needs. 

Human beings need a lot.
Beyond the basic needs for food and shelter, we have many psychosocial and emotional needs as well.

When these needs go unmet we experience a long list of effects that looks quite a bit like a list of "dementia behavior symptoms".

Fatigue
Irritability
Anger
Anxiety
Withdrawal

Dementia doesn't erase our human needs.
But it does make is much harder for us to recognize or manage on our own, or communicate them to others.

But... how do we know which needs are going unmet?

The answer lies in behavior tracking.
