Traveling with loved ones who have Dementia.

January 2, 2014

It can be very difficult to travel with loved ones who have dementia, whether it’s just to a doctor’s appointment or taking a trip out of town. Those who have dementia need familiarity. A change in routine and environment can cause them great distress.

Alzheimer’s Tennessee has posted a very informative article:

“Travel Guidelines for People with Memory Disorder”

Admitting that your mom, dad, husband, or wife just can’t “do” or “go” like they used to is one of the most difficult things we face in life. We have always seen them as being strong individuals, and to see them age and become more dependent is extremely difficult.

At Elder Advocates and the Center for Memory Management, we have an extremely knowledgible staff who specialize in dementia and other memory disorders. We are here to answer your questions and guide you through the decision making process. We can help you with facility placement, insurance questions, clinical treatment, etc. We would like to take the stress and worry out of taking care of your loved one so that you can enjoy your time together.
