The U.S. National Institute on Aging offers holiday suggestions for Alzheimer's caregivers:
- Show a photo of a holiday guest to the person a week before the guest's arrival. Each day, explain who the visitor is while showing the photo.
- Before the visitor arrives, set up a phone call between your loved one and the visitor.
- Stick to daily routines as much as possible.
- Give the person with Alzheimer's plenty of time to rest.
