Can you believe it's November?! This month marks the start of the holiday season, a time to reflect on our blessings, gather with friends and family, recount memories and traditions. It's an especially busy time for family caregivers balancing a loved one’s needs with holiday shopping, cooking, traveling.
Have you slowed down to consider the holiday stressors that may impact a loved one with Alzheimer's or another dementia? During this time of tradition and hustle and bustle, a senior loved one may become anxious or sad as normal routines might vary and memories of family or friends who have passed begin to surface.
Join me and David Troxel, an expert in Alzheimer's disease and memory care, as we talk about caring for your loved one living with Alzheimer's or dementia over the holiday season in our Live Chat on Tuesday, November 13 at 2:00pm EDT. Register here.
We will address the following topics and take live questions during the chat. If you'd like to send in your question ahead of time, email me:firstname.lastname@example.org.
