A Special Holiday Tip from Carol Poole, a Floridian Living with Alzheimer’s:
“Let your pals help you during the holidays. They want to do something helpful; but they aren’t sure what you really need. It truly reduced my anxiety to make a list of things to accomplish over the holidays, and have friends and family help me with that list.
I told them their help is a great Christmas gift to me. They also gave made me a memory book – from Shutterfly – with pictures of our fun times over the years. It sparked my memories. What a treasure.
This applies not only to people with the disease, but their caregivers too, like my darling husband, Ken”.
