Dementia Friendly Holidays
Dec 13 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm
Dementia Friendly Holidays

For persons with dementia, the sights, sounds and activities of the holidays can be overstimulating and overwhelming, which can result in their discomfort and difficult situations. Learn how to make the holidays simple, yet special and appropriate for individuals with dementia. Modifying holiday traditions and managing unrealistic expectations also reduces stress for dementia caregivers as well.

At the completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe why the holidays can be difficult for individuals with dementia.
  2. Identify methods for making holiday events more comfortable for individuals with dementia.
  3. Recognize appropriate holiday gifts for persons in various stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
  4. Describe appropriate holiday activities for individuals with dementia.
