The QNMU is regularly contacted by members with health and safety concerns over aggressive behaviour from residents suffering dementia. Often these members have attempted to resolve issues with their managers with little success. This trend of violence in dementia care is very disturbing, especially as the number of people with dementia is expected to increase to an estimated 536,164 by 2025 and 1.2 million by 2056.
This information sheet outlines what is dementia, employer's responsibility, your responsibility and reference list.
