Owner of Home Instead Senior Care Edmonton, CPCA
As the holiday season fast approaches, many families are prepping for loads of fun, family, and friends. For those families who have a loved one struggling with dementia, it can be a time of additional challenges. You want to do everything to ensure your senior can enjoy the festivities. Dementia steals your aged parents of their memories, decision-making skills, and ability to communicate well. This may hamper interactions during meals and get-togethers, but it doesn’t mean they should be left out. Instead, you can engage them with a little bit of preparation and adjustment.
Embrace all that the holidays mean for you and your family by modifying some traditional activities. You can avoid feeling stressed and overwhelmed by getting memory care services provided by a trained caregiver from Home Instead Senior Care in West Edmonton. Our passionate personal support workers (PSW) can step in and assist with caring for your senior. They offer much support for you and your loved one with personal care, meals and nutrition, and light household duties.
You can make great memories if you re-evaluate holiday activities to keep your senior mentally engaged. Here are some easy ways to do this:
