Main goal is safety of person and yourself:

  • Safety proof the environment
  • Try to get the person to rest
  • Reduce noises and distractions
  • Use a calm, reassuring approach
  • Provide information about who, what, where
  • Speak slowly, calmly
  • Repeat things
  • Make eye contact, but do not touch
  • Monitor until delirium resolves
