Education re: Responses

Our 87 yr. old father has been admitted to an Alz facility two weeks ago. Our family (86 yr. old mother, 4 grown children, spouses and 10 grandchildren with 5 spouses)is seeking education in how to respond and redirecting. We would like to attend seminars or on-line classes to learn the new language we find ourselves needing. Last February/March while researching Alzheimers on the internet I came across a chat where MDs were answering the questions. It was a cooperative effort for a university study. I lost it and couldn't find my way back to it. I also found and lost a university that offered a course/workshop in practical ways to deal with behavioral problems and responses. We'd very much like to find those two resources again. We've read "The 36 Hr. Day, "Alzheimers for Dummies" etc. We understand one can't change the patient's "reality" however, we don't know how to repond to Dad's disillusional insistence that Mom is having an affair with their long term neighbor and friend. His anger and hostile aggression over this is a challenge to deal with; while his very real broken heart is even more upsetting. Advice and direction would be most appreciated.
