Dementia Care in Howell
How to Help When They Say They Want to Go Home
Hearing your loved one say they want to go home can be painful, especially when they are already in their home. For dementia patients, this can be an indication of an underlying issue. If you have experienced this with your loved one, our dementia care in Howell can help. Our team at Visiting Angels® Livingston-Oakland is committed to aiding seniors in our community and the surrounding areas.
When your loved one mentions going home, it is often the cause of confusion or possible loss of verbal skills. Both of these are common among seniors with dementia. Your loved one may be trying to communicate other issues to you, like physical pain, loneliness, boredom, or unmet needs.
How you respond to your loved one is important. Instead of becoming frustrated, agree with your loved one. Acknowledging their feelings and asking them more about their home may help you understand. You can also redirect your loved one's thoughts by having them help you with a task.
