Tips for Going on an Outing with a Senior Suffering from Dementia

Friday, December 3, 2021

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain illness that results in dementia. Memory, cognition, and behavior are all compromised in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. Common behaviors such as bewilderment, difficulties with language or movement, inability to identify friends or family members, illusions about their surroundings or reality, mood swings, and hostility might result from this. The number of people living with Alzheimer’s disease in the United States is anticipated to be close to 5.8 million, with the figure expected to quadruple by the year 2050. Alzheimer’s disease affects individuals as young as 60 and as old as 80.

Caregivers from Concierge Care are skilled in providing crucial in-home care for those with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. We are an essential part of our clients’ Alzheimer’s and Dementia care teams, and we are willing to collaborate with their physicians and family members to provide comprehensive care.

How to help your family members deal with Alzheimer’s in unfamiliar settings

One of the most difficult aspects of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease is going on trips with them. Seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease may behave abnormally in public, making it difficult to transport them without causing a disturbance. Still, it is possible to prevent behavioral problems.

You can help loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease preserve their quality of life for as long as possible by doing a variety of activities.

Make sure to bring a familiar object from home when traveling to a new location so that your loved one feels at ease. Bring a blanket, a book, or anything else they enjoy to keep them relaxed and comfortable while you are out exploring.
