Dementia and Wandering (bitesize)

 

What I liked about this Dementia Help Sheet (link below): 

  • It reminds me that wandering is, now, a totally ‘normal’ behaviour I should expect.  Wandering is their way of answering the call of the Australian in them. 

 

Key points I extracted from this Help Sheet: 

  • Expect them to go AWOL if you change their environment. 
  • They might simply forget where they were or where they are going. 
  • Been on the sofa for the last three days and they are able, expect a wander at any time. 
  • People with dementia do remember… and they might pop out  to rekindle an old memory, or an old friend. 
  • Have they gone for a walk or are they running away?  Fundamental difference! 

 

What I do (pretty much what the help sheets recommends): 

  • Curtain in front the kitchen door (her main door). 
  • Neighbours know. 
  • Use technology (but I would!) to keep her safe. 

 

More on this subject:

 

Author of this blog (Transparency):   

  • I work for CPR Global Tech and, for personal reasons, like many people, I have had to learn a lot about dementia the hard way.  As there is a natural forum on our website, it makes sense for me to share info here.
