TRAVELING WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS ALZHEIMER'S
I can’t be alone when I admit one of the best parts about the holidays is the opportunity to get away, right?! This year I have decided to take a trip with my sister and mom to visit family in Panama and I know it will be both relaxing and fun (despite what faces the below photo shows on my mom and sis hahaha)!
Now around this time of year it is usually filled with sweet indulgences, crazy amounts of carbs and tons of baked goods sooo vibing on that theme, today, I am going to give you the 3 Step Recipe for How to Travel with Someone Who Has Alzheimer's.
Are you ready?
- 1 cup of familiar devices
- 2 tablespoons of smiles
- 3 pinches of patience
Place the familiar devices (ex; iPod and bluetooth headphones) or accessories (ex; coloring book or empty water bottle) in a carry on luggage or tote bag and bring any chargers. Add back up batteries and back up accessories like extra headphones.
Reduce the stress of travel to medium and carefully add the smiles, without breaking the positive vibes as you check into your flight.
Poach the patience for 3 minutes or longer if you like to move swiftly through boarding by adding the understanding to travel attendants and explaining about your loved ones situation.
To serve, once on the airplane gently place your loved one in their seat with seat belt secured, and present familiar devices once again. Serve warm smiles with confidence on the side knowing that with preparation and a plan you have successfully traveled with your loved one!
There you have it, a fresh-baked one of a kind way to travel with someone with Alzheimer's. Any questions?!
