Over excitement

My OH has Alzheimer's. He gets over excited about things, such as cheers lots even if given a biscuit. Any ideas of how to help him to be calmer would be good please.

I think it’s called “emotional lability” @Reds. My dad used to get very giggly at times...I suppose it’s better than crying although it could be embarrassing!
Sorry, I have no idea how to stop it.

Mum is like this, laughs at things all the time that no one else finds funny. We just smile these days rather than trying to make sense of it and are just thankful that she is not miserable. She always did have a tendency to giggle, even before dementia.

I don't want to appear to have been trivialising this issue as I know it is yet another of the many frustrations that come with this disease.
