For most families, the holidays are filled with togetherness, sharing, laughter and memories. However, for people caring for the 5.7 million Americans with Alzheimer’s Disease, the holidays can also be filled with stress, disappointment and sadness. Because of the changes caused by Alzheimer’s, families, as well as the person with the disease, may feel a special sense of loss during the holidays.

Caregivers may also feel overwhelmed by trying to maintain holiday traditions while providing care. In addition, there may be some hesitation about inviting family and friends over to share the holiday for fear they will be uncomfortable with the changes they see in the person with the disease.

Here are some suggestions for creating a happy, contented and memorable holiday season for the person living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers.
