Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias come with more than just memory loss. The changes in the brain also mean changes in behavior, such as repetitive actions, aggression, wandering, agitation and suspicious thoughts. Learn possible reasons for these behaviors and how to handle these situations when they arise.
