Dementia is a progressive condition. India currently has more than 4 million persons with dementia and it is expected to have more than 10 million (1 crore) by 2040. Challenging behaviours are seen in nearly 90% of persons with dementia. These can include altered sleep-wake cycle, agitation, restlessness, presence of delusions & hallucinations, depression, anxiety, repeated calling-out, disinhibition and aggression. These behaviours can be very challenging, both for the person with dementia and the caregiver. Professionals managing persons with dementia should be able to manage challenging behaviour and also should support family caregivers. This workshop aims to help professionals to gain confidence in managing challenging behaviour in persons with dementia. It is being held as a pre-conference workshop as part of the eighth edition of the prestigious International conference on Schizophrenia (IConS – VIII).
