Dementia Care in Layton
How To Help When They Say They Want To Go Home
At Visiting Angels® Davis-Weber, we provide the most trusted dementia care in the Layton area. Our service helps local families care for their relatives and cope with the wide-ranging effects of this disorder. One of these effects is a reduced ability to communicate verbally, and this often leads to the phrase "I want to go home."
The confusing thing about this statement, is it is often made while they are at home already. This can be an indication that they are simply confused about their location, but it often isn't so simple. With their reduced ability to put words together, they often use this phrase as a general proclamation of discomfort. It can mean they are feeling sad, lonely, bored, or many other things.
While you might not be able to figure out exactly what they are trying to say, you should still listen to them and try to address their needs. Never argue or explain they are already at home, as this will only cause more stress. You can calm them down by redirecting their attention with music or a short walk. The most important thing is to stay calm and let them know they are safe and loved.
