Caring For a Person with Confusion and Dementia (Part 2)

CARING FOR THE CONFUSED PERSON:

  • Follow the person’s care plan.
  • Provide for safety. Use a night-light at night.
  • Face the person. Speak slowly and clearly.
  • Call the person by name every time you have contact with him/her.
  • State your name.
  • Give the date and time each morning. Repeat when necessary during the day or evening.
  • Explain what you are going to do and why.
  • Give clear, simple directions and answers to questions.
  • Ask clear and simple questions. Give the person time to respond.
  • Keep calendars and clocks with large numbers in the person’s room. Remind the person of holidays, birthdays, and other special events.
  • Have the person wear glasses and a hearing aid if needed.
  • Place familiar objects and pictures within the person’s view.
  • Provide newspapers, magazines, TV and radio. Read to the person if appropriate.
  • Discuss current events with the person.
  • Maintain the day-night cycle. Curtains, shades, and drapes are open during the day and closed at night. Have the person wear regular clothes during the day- not sleepwear.
  • Provide a calm, relaxed and peaceful setting. Prevent loud noises, rushing, and congested hallways and dining rooms.
  • Follow the person’s routine. Meals, bathing, exercise, television programs, and other activities have a schedule. This promotes order and anticipation of what to expect.
  • Do not move furniture or the person’s belongings.
  • Encourage the person to take part in self-care activities.
  • Be consistent.
