Alzheimer's Care for the Holidays

The holiday season is a wonderful time for families and friends to gather together. Unfortunately, however, the season can be bittersweet for those struggling to provide Alzheimer’s care for aging loved ones. Holiday stress can compound the already formidable challenges facing family caregivers, and take away from the love that motivates children and spouses to care for Alzheimer’s patients.

This holiday season, it is important for families to come together and cherish one another. But it is equally important for family caregivers to take time for themselves to alleviate stress and combat the toll that caretaking can have on individuals, relationships, and overall well being. Strike a balance between family time and personal time. Let assisted living and Alzheimer's care homes lighten the load – and you’ll find yourself better able to relax and enjoy the holidays with your beloved family and friends.
