Traveling With a Person Who Has Alzheimerís
By Joyce Simard

(Page 2 of 2)

If you feel travel will be too difficult with your loved-one consider respite care at an assisted living facility. Many facilities offer this form of short-term care. A great way to approach respite care with your loved-one is to tell them they are going on vacation too. Respite care will provide quality care and meaningful activities, which will make their stay very enjoyable and safe, just as a vacation should be. You can even call the facility frequently while on your trip to make sure everything is ok. 

Keep in mind that taking a break from your care giving responsibilities can be vital for your own mental and physical health. In the end, itís a tremendous benefit to both caregiver and care recipient. Bon voyage!
