The Alzheimer’s Podcast:
Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa
Welcome to Episode 66 of The Alzheimer’s Podcast – Your #1 source for practical tips and insights.
I’m Mike Good of Together in This.
Thank you for joining me for another podcast where my goal is always to empower you and your family to maintain a positive experience, reduce and eliminate the need for medications, and make your time together with those you care for, the best it can be.
Oh, the holidays – what a great time of year. But it definitely comes with a unique set of challenges and accompanying stress.
When you’re trying to balance your role as dementia care partner with the demands of the holiday, it’s easy to have a bad experience or two.
But there are so many opportunities to have a great experience with your loved one. So you must find ways to maximize the joy of the holiday season.
And in this episode of Navigating Rough Terrain with The Dementia Sherpa, Christy Turner and I discuss how you can accomplish this.
