When a loved one has dementia, you may be inclined to stay at home because it’s simply takes too much effort to have a successful outing and you may fear what might happen if things don’t go as planned.
But it’s extremely important that you overcome these hurdles because getting out and about is healthy for everyone, and helps keep us sharp and engaged.
Today Christy Turner returns for another episode of Navigating Rough Terrain with The Dementia Sherpa. Christy and I will be discussing strategies to help you have successful outings with your loved one.
In case you’re new, Christy Turner, the Dementia Sherpa, joins me regularly for discussions 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.
