Calm Down Phase

The Calm Down Phase is characterized by a decrease in tension or stress by the care-receiver.  The person has settled down and become more rational and has returned to his or her usual or normal behaviors.

Responses by the caregiver often involve offering reassurance and re-establishing communication with the care-receiver.   It is during this phase that a proactive plan will need to be negotiated with the care-receiver to minimize future occurrences of crisis behavior related to the original problem.
