Dementia Care in San Diego
How To Help When They Say They Want To Go Home
With loving dementia care throughout San Diego, Visiting Angels® La Mesa delivers experienced support to help your family. We provide assistance inside the homes of local seniors, helping with various needs and making it possible for those afflicted with this disorder to continue living at home.
With a wide array of effects, dementia can create many stressful and confusing situations, both for those suffering from the disorder, and those delivering care. One situation that commonly pops up, is that seniors will often declare "I want to go home," even when the phrase makes no logical sense. This is due to their diminished ability to communicate verbally. They are trying to say something else, but these are the words their mind comes up with.
In these delicate situations, do not try and reason with them. You should simply keep a calm demeanor and let them know you are here for their support. Your main focus should be on reassuring them they are safe and helping them to redirect their attention elsewhere. Some nice music or something as simple as a hug can really have an impact on these moments of anxiety.
