Traveling During the Holidays with a Loved One with Memory Loss

As the holiday season approaches, our thoughts often turn to visiting friends and family. Whether it’s a short trip across town or a cross-country trip by plane, visiting loved ones makes the holidays merry and bright. But if you’re a caregiver for someone with dementia or another form of memory loss, travel requires more than a little preparation, patience and determination.

Exercise has been proven to be beneficial for people of all ages. That goes double for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or another form of memory loss. They not only receive the numerous physical benefits, but also see improvement in motor skills, a decreased risk of falls and a lower rate of diseases that are associated with cognitive decline. This results in improved memory and behavior, better communication abilities and a variety of other benefits specifically related to the unique challenges of those with dementias.

However, there may come a time when you notice that Mom or Dad is declining in health and ability. They may be more difficult to handle, or issues are popping up that you don’t always feel comfortable handling yourself. You’re spending more and more of your time taking care of them (and becoming more and more stressed out). Sound familiar?
