As the external consultant for MacIntyre’s Dementia Project, I wrote 11 Changed Behaviour booklets, some of which have now been made available on their website. The booklets support the Changed Behaviour eBook that I wrote as part of MacIntyre’s Wellbeing for Life Toolkit.

The booklets look at different ‘behaviours’ as they may be described (words like ‘aggression’ aren’t my preferred terminology but used in this instance for staff to have a logical reference point), and are packed full of practical, non-drug, non-restraint approaches that were approved by MacIntyre’s Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) team.

Resources released so far:

Paranoia and accusations



Losing hiding or hoarding objects or items


Tearfulness: Being emotional

Wakefulness: Disturbed sleep


I will update this page as more resources are published.
