Health & Wellness - Alzheimer's Disease: The Holidays and Caregiving

A person in the early stage of a dementia-related disease may experience a special sense of loss during the holidays because of the changes he or she is experiencing and the implications for the future. As the disease progresses, the physical changes at home, the shifts in usual routines and the increased activity and noises at this time of year can be upsetting and may lead to unusual behaviors or emotions. This class will discuss the possible feelings of both the person with the disease and their caregiver, and tips for making the holidays easier. This workshop is presented by the Alzheimer's Association.
