How To Help When They Say They Want To Go Home

A dementia diagnosis comes with many challenges, and Visiting Angels┬« Charlotte is here to offer support. Our professional dementia care helps Matthews area seniors live comfortably in their own homes for as long as possible. Our goal is to provide the help you and your loved one need to manage their disorder and avoid a move to an assisted care facility. 

As part of our assistance, we'd like to walk you through a very common situation. For many dementia sufferers, the loss of verbal communication skills is a frequent side-effect. This leads to excessive use of the phrase 'I want to go home,' regardless of their location. They might be at home when they make this statement, and it is normal to misinterpret this as simple confusion. The truth is, this can mean many different things. 

Since they cannot fully express themselves, this phrase is the way many seniors express general discomfort. It can refer to physical pain, or some type of emotional issue. The important thing is to understand they are stressed and scared when they make this statement, so you should react by staying calm and refraining from any dialogue about their physical location. 

At Visiting Angels Charlotte, it is our pleasure to provide the help and support your family needs to create the best home life for your loved one.
