3 ways to re-direct exit seeking behavior

1. Identify the time of day when the behavior is at its peek. Offer activities and physical exercise to reduce agitation, anxiety and restlessness.

2. Offer reassurance. Do they feel lost? or confused?

3. Ensure all basic needs are met. Are they looking for a place to use the restroom? are they hungry? need hydration? Would they like to talk to a family member?
