    Great points. Here are a few points to consider when a person is combative:
    I would not touch anyone without permission especially when they are upset- it is actually better NOT to touch them if they are combative and I would keep 6 feet away until I believe it is safe to come near them- The old adage that if an older person struck you it is the well person’s fault (unless you have to change their diaper or giving them a bath but even then you need to back off)

    I think it is better to inquiry rather than talk and when it is time to talk, sincerity is the most important component- genuine concern for their plight
