Dementia Care in Santa Barbara County
How To Help When They Say They Want To Go Home
People who suffer with dementia often declare they "want to go home," regardless of their current location. To help your loved one cope with these issues and live their most comfortable life, it's vital to have a plan for their support. At Visiting Angels® Santa Barbara, we offer professional dementia care throughout Santa Barbara County.
When your loved one says "I want to go home," from the comfort of their own living room, this can mean many things. They are likely trying to communicate some other issue, such as an undiagnosed injury or feelings of confusion or sadness. You should not worry about correcting them or injecting logic into the situation, but rather focus on being a calming and nurturing presence.
They are most likely experiencing a great deal of anxiety in these moments, so your role should be to listen to them and try to redirect their attention in a calming way. This can be done through music, walks, or simple household tasks. The most important thing is to remain relaxed, loving, and compassionate while trying to figure out what they are trying to communicate.
