Dementia Care in Brick Township
What You Need to Know About Wandering
Those with Alzheimer's and dementia often struggle to recognize familiar things such as people and places. When this happens, they can become confused and disoriented, and potentially end up wandering around and getting lost. At Visiting Angels® Toms River, we provide dementia care to help Brick Township area families cope with problems like these.
If your loved one has been diagnosed with one of these disorders, it's important to be aware of the signs that they are at risk of wandering. Some things to keep an eye on include:
- Do they take longer than normal to complete a familiar walk?
- Do they tend to forget directions to places they know very well?
- Do they talk about things from their past as if they are happening currently?
- Have you noticed a lot of pacing and other repetitive movements?
- Does your loved one get nervous or scared in crowded places?
These are all indications your loved one is capable of wandering. This can be incredibly dangerous, so it's vital to be prepared and have a support plan. With our help, you don't have to go through all of this alone. The most important way to keep your loved one safe, is to have someone around tending to their needs and looking out for issues of extreme confusion. While it's not always possible to do this on your own, it's much easier when you have an ally.
We can be there for your loved one as often as you need, providing comfort, safety, and companionship to help them cope with their diagnosis.
