One of issues with dementia and memory loss is losing the ability to reason. Your loved one can no longer see the gravity of the situation or the safety concerns they may be facing. Unfortunately they have lost the ability to problem solve. They often crave routine and changes to their routine can, for a time, make the memory issues appear worse. As they get into a new routine, recognize the people that live on their floor, and start to trust staff they will become content and often times thrive.
There is a lot of advice on the internet to help with this situation but we suggest calling or coming in to speak with us. Together we can look at what you have tried, what hasn’t worked and hopefully develop a plan to ease your loved ones concerns. Often the fear of the unknown is worse that the reality which is why we invite you and your loved one to stop in and visit.
