What’s the hardest part about being a caregiver during the holidays?

Being a caregiver is a rewarding (but sometimes tough) role, and it can be extra challenging especially during the holiday season when the external demands are heightened.

What do you find to be the hardest part about being a caregiver this time of year? What tips do you have for other caregivers who are also navigating the holiday season?

💜 P.S. We hope you can take a little time for yourself to rest and recharge.

Alzheimer’s Walk #alzheimers

My husband and I attend the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday. We raised $675.00! The local chapter raised $125,000.00 so far for this years walk. The weather was perfect, lots of attendees young and old plus the four legged kind, music, snacks, give aways, and lots of fun.

The weather says Fall #alzheimers

I love Fall! That time of year for harvest, bon fires, soccer games (grandson), cool weather, and leaves turning brilliant colors. What is your favorite part of Fall?

Today #alzheimers

What are you planning on doing today? I went to the grandchildren’s house and helped get them up, fed, dressed, and out the door on time. Of course we had to stop and “save” the upside down grasshopper before we could get in the car. I’ve had breakfast and trying to get the motivation to get on the treadmill, ugh. I have my memory loss art class today and that is usually fun. ❤️😁

Do you have a dementia diagnosis? #LivingWithAlzheimers #alzheimers #AlzheimersDisease #Dementia

As a person with the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, I had a wish that there would be a group for those diagnosed to support one another. So I started one! Join me on The Mighty group “Living With Alzheimer’s”. It’s for those with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or other dementias. ❤️😁

Just plain exhausted #Depression #Anxiety #PTSD #alzheimers #ChronicMigraines #Fibromyalgia

What an exhausting 8 days! I’m spent mentally, emotionally, and physically. I’m so tired I can’t sleep and that just compounds the exhaustion. Tomorrow I’m going to do NOTHING! Thanks for listening!❤️

New Group

I started a new group called “Living With Alzheimer’s”. To draw people in it was suggested I share a link to a post that I make. I need directions on how to share the link. Can you help me? #alzheimers #Dementia #MemoryLoss

Giving those with Alzheimer’s a place to share and support one another. #alzheimers support #Memory loss #Depression #Anxiety #Dementia

I was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s 4 years ago. I was looking for a support group for individuals with Alzheimer’s or other Dementias. There are a lot of support groups for the caregivers but not for those with the diagnosis. So now you, the diagnosis person, can find support with like minded people. We may have the diagnosis but we still have a lot to say and contribute! So please join me on our journey together! We are “Alzheimer’s Support” on The Mighty. 😁
