Responsive behaviour and dementia

This short video is a good introduction to responsive behaviour. We used to call it ‘difficult’ or ‘disturbed’ or ‘challenging’. Responsive is a much better term that captures the fact that the person with dementia (just as you and I do) respond ti stimuli in our environment or from within ourselves that cause us to act. So in that sense the person with dementia is no different to you and me.
