Manage the Mean Monday

Part 1 - Hurtful Things They May Say

People with dementia might say hurtful things

When you’re caring for an older adult with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, they might make mean comments, use hurtful words, or accuse you of terrible (but untrue) things. It’s devastating to hear, but the most important thing to remember is that their disease is causing the behavior.

Your older adult isn’t purposely saying these things to hurt you. The damage in their brain is causing it. However, while they’re yelling or making false accusations, it’s tough to try to keep that in mind and ignore the hurtful words.
