So what do you do when nothing works to redirect your loved ones?

  1. Use a lot of patience
  2. Try a change of scenery {go to another room or outside}
  3. Continue to keep trying to redirect and divert attention
  4. See if softly singing or playing a CD will help
  5. Walk out of the room and see if being left alone helps {sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn’t}
  6. Pray for patience and guidance. I’ve even prayed over a person and find that this often works.
  7. Create a calm environment and allow to get some sleep. This often leads to increased agitation.

How do you calm agitation when nothing else works?
