Alzheimer’s is a brain disease that affects behavior, thinking and especially memory. Many patients become disoriented and forget where they are. This leads to wandering. It is important to make their surroundings familiar and as recognizable as possible. Photos and favorite items kept close by are a way to make people feel secure. Notes or signs may be necessary to show them where things are or arrows leading to the bathroom, for example, to remind them how to get somewhere.
While caregivers want their loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s disease to be comfortable, it is ultimately imperative to keep them safe. Allowing individuals to explore their surroundings is a good idea as long as there is nothing that poses a danger in their way. There are many products that aid in fall prevention such as bed alarms, wheelchair alarms, and even toilet alarms. However, if independence is possible then utilizing a motion detection alarm may be favored. Place the wandering alarm at the boundary point to alert of movement beyond that area.
Understanding why a person is wandering is a way to control it and prevent it. Many times a patient is looking for something, trying to escape, or simply performing a routine they once had. Calmly communicating with your family member is the key in preventing them from getting upset, which will cause more disorientation and agitation. Stimulating the senses has beneficial results that greatly outweigh restraints and medication.
