How To Help When They Say They Want To Go Home

At Visiting Angels┬« Southeast Portland, we provide professional dementia care in Milwaukie and surrounding communities. This disorder brings many new challenges, and the most important thing for you to do is create a support plan. We are proud to help in the effort to keep those with dementia living safely in their own homes, enjoying comfort, privacy, and crucial familiarity. 

Dementia can affect many aspects of day-to-day life. One unique challenge, is that it affects their ability to properly communicate. This often leads to them saying the phrase "I want to go home." In most cases, this should not be taken literally. They are using this statement as a means of expressing some other form of discomfort. It can relate to physical pain, sadness, boredom, or many other things. 

The important thing is for you to remain calm and refrain from any sort of logical discussion. Do not attempt to inform them that they are already at home, as this will just increase their stress level even further. Your focus should be on keeping them relaxed and redirecting their attention in a peaceful way. Music, basic chores, and going for walks are great ways to get this done. 

We can step in to relieve family caregivers on a part-time basis, or take the lead and provide full-time support. Whatever you need to give your loved one the best possible quality of life, we are ready to provide.
