Plain English Summary Background Two-thirds of people with dementia live at home and many experience distressing symptoms such as aggression, wandering, agitation, emotional problems, known as behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD), which result in poor outcomes. We aimed to combine evidence from various sources to find out what types of non-drug based interventions might be helpful for people with dementia and their carers. We also conducted focus groups (FG) and interviews with service users and providers around managing BPSD.
