Christy Turner, the Dementia Sherpa, returns for our second broadcast of the Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa series.
In case you missed it, in our first episode, we discussed How to Maximize the Joy of Halloween in Dementia Care – look for episode 19.
The holidays are officially here. This can be a very challenging time even without the challenges you may face caring for a loved one with dementia.
Today Christy and I are going to talk about Holiday Travel and dementia. We discuss whether its appropriate and many of the challenges you might face.
Christy shares many tips and strategies to help you prepare for and overcome many of these challenges so that you and your loved one have a more positive experience.
Christy joins me every other Tuesday for a discussion to help empower you to be successful as you care for someone living with dementia.
She is a Certified Dementia Practitioner, Certified Dementia Care Unit Manager, and Cognitive Stimulation Instructor. She has run award-winning memory care communities in assisted living and skilled nursing levels of care.
Using her 16 years of experience in working with over 1,100 people living with dementia and their families, she’s developed a system that helps families move from crisis management to confidence.
