Engaging in outings can evoke both excitement and trepidation for individuals living with dementia.
Fremont Senior Living wants to address these concerns by offering valuable insights to transform your outings into enjoyable, stress-free experiences.
Not every location is always good for a person living with dementia. Sometimes, a place filled with people can cause an individual to become overstimulated or lead to behaviors.
When planning a successful outing, you must first evaluate your loved one. If they are having a good day, I plan for a location with a quiet atmosphere and bring along a cell phone, emergency contact information, extra clothing, water, snacks, and any other needed supplies.
If something unexpected happens during your outing, it is essential that you stay calm. Handle the situation, ask for assistance if needed, and call emergency services if required.
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.
