A questionnaire survey was conducted regarding the cases in which BPSD were reduced and 130 cases were examined by a multiple correspondence analysis.</p><p>  As a result, BPSD and related effective interventions were divided into four groups. Group 1 included BPSD with aggressive behaviours and the interventions aimed at calming the clients down. Group 2 included BPSD, in which the problems are mainly confusion and disorientation and the interventions to stimulate clients’ socialization and usage of their abilities. Group 3 was composed of BPSD mainly associated with biological causes and interventions to avoid conflicts and to build a steady life style. Group 4 included only one type of BPSD, delusion of persecution. The intervention to compensate hearing loss was suggested as effective to reduce it.</p>
