Alzheimer’s disease can change how a person acts over time. You may see behaviors like:
- Getting upset, worried, and angry more easily
- Acting depressed or not interested in things
- Hiding things
Caregivers may not be able to stop these changes, but there are ways to cope. Read about them in our tip sheet Managing Personality and Behavior Changes. This tip sheet is available to download as a PDF and an e-Book (both ePub and MOBI formats).
