dementia picking at air

People living with dementia may engage in a behaviour known as ‘pacing’, exhibiting seemingly erratic and compulsive behaviour – ranging from tugging on clothes to reaching for phantom objects in the atmosphere. This can be an indication of the disease.

Many individuals with dementia may be prone to absentmindedly picking at thin air, yet this behaviour can likewise manifest in an entirely healthy context. It is significant to decide between these two situations, for if the person is pacing restlessly, it could be an indication that their cognitive impairment has reached a concerning level.

People with dementia may find themselves habitually picking at the air as a form of self-calming. It can also serve as a distraction against feelings of boredom or agitation. While not overly troubling, this behavior may be bothersome to those taking care of the individual.

When you worry that your loved one is preoccupied with a strange habit, like ‘picking at air’ due to their dementia, there are methods to try and assist. You may start by enabling them to partake in actions that bring them delight. This can help mitigate feelings of boredom and annoyance.

If your loved one’s picking at air has become a source of worry, consider diverting their attention with a distraction. Diversionary strategies could be useful in curtailing any behaviours caused by dementia.

Are you having a hard time dealing with your beloved’s dementia? Help is there for you. Consult your GP and he/she can direct you to the needed assistance services.
