When you’re caring for an elder, and especially someone living with dementia, the noise and busyness of family visits can be challenging. This year will be even more stressful with our need to stay safe and healthy. We’ll talk about what you can do to host a positive visit for everyone, whether it’s in-person or virtually. This discussion will give you the tools to:
- Gauge the sensory and engagement capacity of your loved one.
- Create the best physical environment for a positive visit.
- Prepare your guests to have appropriate expectations, and to ask for their support.
