Solutions for Living with Alzheimer’s & Dementia

The Way to Aging understands the struggles and frustrations that living with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease can put on a senior and their family. That’s why we offer solutions to the crises brought about by these challenging conditions. Our specialist often works with people suffering from dementia during crises. It can be an incredibly stressful and difficult time for the entire family. The older adult’s safety when they have dementia is a top priority during any crisis, and if you’re facing one, we implore you to call us. We can assist you in navigating the options available to ensure your loved one stays safe. The most common behaviors that present themselves during a crisis are agitation and aggression, and a behavioral crisis can occur suddenly in anyone suffering from dementia. Other key behaviors that contribute to a crisis include wandering, hallucinations, and delusions. Older adults who reside in their own homes during a crisis are at a higher risk of harm. In many cases, seniors end up relocated into a psychiatric inpatient setting, long-term care setting, specialist-care unit, or they might be referred to psychiatric community services.  Call Now 949-278-6181

The Importance of Crisis Interventions

As an expert in the field of gerontology and dementia, the specialist at The Way to Aging makes sure the senior gets the necessary care they need during a crisis. Doing so also gives the family peace of mind that their loved one is safe and in capable professional hands. During an intervention, it’s important for families to know that we look to understand, reduce and manage aggression and agitation while trying to determine the type of dementia and finding a solution for your love one. The benefits of having a routine and structure in a senior’s daily life when they’re suffering from dementia can improve their mood and reduce the stress that they and their family might otherwise endure. To help treat the individuals’ agitation and aggression that accompany a dementia crisis, some non-pharmacological interventions include calming methods. These methods might entail the following examples:

  • Having a senior listen to their favorite music
  • Exposing them to sunlight
  • Using a calming oil like lavender in aromatherapy
  • Going for a walk
  • Showing them pictures of loved ones or engaging them in conversation to reminisce about the past
  • Redirecting them to hobbies or something they enjoy doing
