Engaging in outings can evoke both excitement and trepidation for individuals living with dementia.
Vitalia Rockside 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. You need to be aware of safety issues and overstimulation. The event should always be in the best interest of your loved one.
To create a successful outing, always plan by doing simple things such as checking the weather, ease of parking, and accessibility. You should always bring a change of clothes, snacks, water, and any supplies needed for the personal care of your loved one.
If something unexpected occurs, remember to stay calm. You should always have an emergency supply kit and an evacuation plan.
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.
