Owner of Home Instead Senior Care Edmonton, CPCA
With the holiday season comes additional travel to see family or just to go someplace warm. It can be a joyous time full of laughter, fun, and adventure. Traveling does have its own set of challenges, and when you travel during the holiday season, it can become very stressful. Adding the extra responsibilities of taking a trip with someone in the family who has dementia or Alzheimer’s disease quickly adds a whole new level of problems to work through. To compound the issue, airlines and airports are not the easiest to navigate when you are solo, let alone when you want to take your elderly family member with you.
Part of efficient
senior care is maintaining routines. That is not always possible when you take a trip away from home. However, with a little bit of preparation, you can ease some of your frustration and keep your aging parent calm during the stress of holiday travel.
