How to Incorporate the Grandkids

The holidays are all about time spent with family. So how do we make that time work for each generation together if one of the grandparents is struggling with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease?

Our memory care experts, Bernie Cavis and Paula Harder discuss in the video below.

Here are some quick tips:

  • Focus a family tradition that everyone can participate in
  • Keep the group small
  • Remember that kids take social ques from adults. If you are acting comfortable with your loved one’s questions and behavior, they will too.
  • Celebrate the success of the moment.
