Season of peacefulness...

I cannot believe how long I neglect this blog! And now the holidays are fast approaching with so much to think about; shopping, cooking, baking, visiting. These are days when caregivers unfortunately don't consider what activities are important enough to invest in and which ones need to be altered. One cannot be a full time caregiver AND be the Martha Stewart of the season. You must ask for help, cut down on activities, and simplify the ones you invest in.
The person with dementia usually has a bit more difficulty adjusting to the changes that holiday activities bring. Be prepared! Slow down your pace to match his/hers and you'll no doubt have a much more peaceful season.
