Providing care for seniors with dementia brings its own unique challenges. One common of all is how to respond to your love one when they repeatedly tell you that they “want to go home.” In most cases, they already are home, but due to memory loss, they have forgotten the environment and no longer feel familiar with it.
For many families, it can be a struggle to understand what their loved one means and what needs aren’t being met.
At Hearts For Dementia Home Care, our dementia program in Scottsdale, Arizona provides care for thousands of patients coping with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. And in our professional opinion, dementia patients might be asking to go home due to the following reasons:
- Sadness of loneliness
- Undiagnosed pain
- Unmet needs
If you’re concerned about the wellbeing of your loved one, it might be time to look for home care assistance in Arizona.
We offer customized home care in Scottsdale AZ for patients who require specialized care and assistance at home or in other facilities.
