Behavioural symptoms of dementia can be disturbing to the person with dementia and challenging for carers to respond to effectively. Non-pharmacological interventions that include meaningful activity and are person centred are recommended as the first line approach to address responsive behaviours. This presentation will review approaches to accurately assess responsive behaviours and how these assessments can then be used to develop care strategies that more effectively respond to such behaviours.
