Wandering [উদ্দেশ্য ছাড়া বিচরণ]

Understanding Wandering Behavior in People with Dementia

Although many people may enjoy wandering, it is a common and potentially dangerous behavior among people with dementia. According to the Alzheimer's Association, up to 60% of people with dementia will wander at some point during their illness. Wandering is defined as moving around aimlessly or without a clear destination or purpose.

The reasons behind wandering behavior among people with dementia are not fully understood, but it is believed to be related to cognitive and behavioral changes associated with the disease. For instance, people with dementia may wander due to a loss of memory, disorientation, or confusion. Moreover, they may wander as a way to alleviate boredom or restlessness, or as a response to unmet needs such as hunger or thirst.

Wandering can be dangerous, as it can increase the risk of falls, accidents, and injuries, as well as increase the likelihood of the person becoming lost or disoriented. Therefore, wandering or moving purposelessly should be evaluated as it is not a normal part of life. In fact, I lost my own uncle in 1995; he wandered and eventually got lost, and up until today, we do not know what happened to him.

Keep loved ones safe, prevent wandering
