Tips for visiting a loved one with Dementia
Keep Visits Simple
Maintain a quiet, comfortable space to spend time together. Try to limit distractions and noise. Avoid too many tasks or people at once.
Not every visit will be the same. What worked last time may not work again. You may need to adjust your expectations and do different activities.
Your mood affects their mood. Stay calm, even if they are unfairly angry or upset with you. Quality time over quantity of time. Refer to their residence as home and as a positive place.
