“I Want to Go Home!” Exploring Messages From Someone Living With Dementia

About This Webinar

In this webinar, we explore various examples of the “I want to go home!” statement/request from someone living with dementia. Some variations will be based on what degree of dementia the person is experiencing at that time. Other possibilities are related to environmental features and long-term patterns that relate to a person living with dementia’s past. The major focus of the session, however, is on the responses and modifications that have greater probabilities of success and distress reduction.

Watch this webinar to learn how to:

  • Recognize the brain state abilities, changes, and losses that are being demonstrated by the person making the statement/request.
  • Identify at least four environmental factors and life-story factors that are probably contributing to the statement-request in a given situation.
  • Compare helpful and not-so-helpful care provider responses to determine at least three that have a higher probability of success and distress resolution when used by personnel in the situation.
