People living with dementia can experience a range of behaviours that can be described as distressed. As most research on distressed reactions has been carried out in care homes, this study explores how family carers of people living with dementia make sense of distressed reactions in home settings, as well as the strategies they have used to manage them. In-depth interviews were conducted with nine carers. The following themes were explored: understandings of distressed reactions; the perceived causes of distressed reactions; and the consequences and management of distressed reactions. Recommendations indicate the specific support that carers require to help them provide appropriate care.
