People with dementia often experience symptoms that affect their behaviour, causing aggression, agitation and psychotic symptoms like delusions and hallucinations. These behavioural and psychological symptoms can be very distressing.

Alzheimer's Society is dedicated to improving treatment and care of people with dementia to help reduce the use of antipsychotic drugs. We are working with many partner organisations to provide information, develop tools and give support to people with dementia, carers and health and social care professionals to achieve this goal.
