BANGS is mnemonic for five ways anyone can use to avert and defuse conflict with people who have Alzheimer’s dementia.

Here are all links to all the letters in the mnemonic:

“B” is for breathe.

“A” is for assess, accept, and agree.

“N” is for never, never argue

“G” is for go with their flow, let go of your ego, get over it, get on with it, get down to it

“S” is for say you’re sorry (again, and again, and again!)
