It’s time for summer vacation! Taking a person with Alzheimer’s disease on an overnight trip can be challenging, but here are some tips to make it easier:
- Keep your schedule realistic—allow lots of time for each thing you want to do.
- Plan rest periods.
- Follow a routine like the one you use at home. Try to have the person eat, rest, and go to bed at the same time they do at home.
- If the person is prone to wandering, carry a recent photo of them on the trip.
