Holidays for Caregivers with Loved ones with Alizheimers

Written by on November 21, 2018

Betsy and Matt

Betsy Wurzel talks about handling the Holidays for loved one’s with Alzheimer’s.  Betsy has talked about this subject before but felt necessary to talk about it again. The holiday’s may not be like you have celebrated in the past. Your family may now have to adjust to the celebration of the holidays  for your loved ones. The large family gatherings maybe too confusing for your loved one. Your loved one may not know that it is Thanksgiving, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Years or any Holiday you are celebrating. You may have to change the holiday celebration to make it less confusing for your loved ones.

Betsy talks about how she is not able to light the Menorah Candles at Hanukkah. One reason the fear that Matt may try to touch the candles. So some of her friends will light the Menorah for her. There are so many things you may have to be aware of to keep your loved ones safe at the holidays.

Confusion, strange people in the house, noise and the disruption of the daily routine. Betsy gives much more information in her audio, You will still have some form of celebration and just probably will not be able to have the celebration your family use to have.

I always recommend that you contact Betsy via Facebook. You can talk with her about the holidays or anything else you may want to talk about, concerning being a caregiver for a loved one with Alziheimer’s.

If you just want to ask me a question or just say Hi that would be great.

Until the next time

Make it a Brilliant day

      Hi Gwen

      Very sorry to hear of your loss. Being a caregiver is a long and hard to do. I would suggest that you contact Betsey E. Wurzel on Facebook. The women that have been interviewed can really be of some help with after the loved one passes.
      Thank you for taking the time to send your comments. Very much appreciated.

      I hope life will get a little better for you.
