How To Help When They Say They Want To Go Home

At Visiting Angels┬« North San Diego County, our dementia care helps San Marcos area seniors extend their home lives and avoid the move to an assisted care facility. We offer assistance in their own homes from kind, loving, and capable caregivers who understand the nuances of this disorder. 

One of the many ways that dementia can affect your loved one, is by reducing their ability to communicate. This creates a common situation where those with dementia repeatedly ask to go home, even when they are already home. The phrase " I want to go home," can mean many things when coming from someone with dementia. It is used as their way of expressing discomfort. 

When these moments occur, you should always reassure them and validate their needs. Maybe the words don't make sense, but pay attention to the emotion behind them. Your loved one is looking for some form of comfort, and you can provide that with something as simple as a hug or by playing their favorite music. This can distract them from the situation in a calming way, and before long they will have forgotten all about the 'request'. 

By providing them with a compassionate and loving response, you can minimize these stressful moments and help them feel safe and secure.
