Dementia Care in San Jose
How To Help When They Say They Want To Go Home
At Visiting Angels® Jacksonville, we offer professional dementia care around San Jose and nearby communities. Our service is the perfect way to support your loved one and make the situation easier on the entire family.
A common side-effect of dementia, is that many seniors struggle with verbal communication. As a result, you might hear the phrase "I want to go home," regardless of their location. While saying this in their own living room might seem like the result of confusion, the reality is much more complex. Dementia-sufferers lean on this phrase as a way of expressing many different feelings. It can mean they are sad, lonely, scared, or feeling some sort of pain.
Your goal should be to remain relaxed, provide them with a calming presence, and listen to what they are trying to say. Do not engage in any arguments or attempt to explain that they are already at home. Doing so will only increase their anxiety and frustration.
We recommend trying to redirect their attention onto something simple and pleasant, such as their favorite music or a basic household chore. It might be time for a hug, or a gentle pat on the shoulder. Try to keep them relaxed and let them know they are in a safe environment with someone who loves them.
