Engaging in outings can evoke both excitement and trepidation for individuals living with dementia.
The Township Senior Living wants to address these concerns by offering valuable insights to transform your outings into enjoyable, stress-free experiences.
Not every location is a good place to take someone living with dementia. Person-centered care is critical in making the decision. What works for one individual might be different from another. Depending on the person, overstimulation can impact the outing. A quiet place is usually better than a group setting.
To create a successful outing, it is essential to plan. Consider the best time of day for your loved one, bring items that may be needed, and prepare for the unexpected. Bring your cell phone, water, snacks, a change of clothes, and a fidget item.
If something unexpected happens, you must stay calm and redirect your loved one if necessary. Calmly address the situation and reach out for assistance if needed.
We aim to provide you with valuable, practical information to support your journey in caring for someone with dementia through love and understanding. It’s crucial to acknowledge outings may only be suitable for some. Each person living with dementia is unique, emphasizing the importance of tailoring the experience to their individual needs and preferences. The goal should always prioritize the well-being and comfort of the individual. By practicing patience, understanding, and compassion, you can ensure a successful and enjoyable experience for them while also reducing stress for yourself.
