Dementia Care in Overland Park
How To Help When They Say They Want To Go Home
With our dementia care in Overland Park, Visiting Angels® Kansas City helps local families support their senior loved ones. A common situation you might encounter when your parent or relative is diagnosed with the disorder, is that they often say "I want to go home," even when they are already home. This is their attempt to communicate something else, and your response to the situation is very important.
They are suffering from a reduced ability to communicate, so instead of expressing their physical pain, sadness, loneliness, or other issues, "I want to go home" is all they can muster. It is important for you to remain calm and refrain from any sort of argument. Attempting to explain they are already home will only lead to further frustration.
In such moments, your relative is probably very stressed and confused, so you can help them the most by remaining calm and letting them know you are there for them. Listen to what they are saying, even if it makes no sense. Play their favorite music, give them a hug or distract them with a basic task. These are all great ways to reduce their anxiety and redirect their attention.
Our Professional Dementia Care in Overland Park
