Engaging in outings can evoke both excitement and trepidation for individuals living with dementia.
Vitalia Montrose 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. It would be best to consider the individual’s specific needs, preferences, and stage of dementia when planning outings or activities. People with dementia can have varying levels of cognitive impairment, so it is essential to consider the individual. Time of day also needs to be considered when planning outings.
Planning is important for a successful trip. Make sure you have all the contact information in case of emergency. Also, if you have a loved one with any incontinence issues, make sure you have the necessities. Consider, communicating your destination so others know where you will be going.
You should always bring along your phone, water, and snacks. Depending on what your outing is, bring blankets. If something unexpected happens, remaining calm is the most important thing, and make sure your loved one is safe.
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.
