Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia can be bewildering and taxing, even on good days. While you remember your loved one as a mother who enjoyed spontaneous outings around town or a father who could find his way with ease through any hardware store, now they might no longer remember your name or are fearful when there is a change in routine.
When you can no longer care for your parents, there are communities specifically designed to provide the specialized care that Alzheimer’s or dementia requires. If you are considering such a community for a parent, but dread the trauma that the transition will cause, there are a number of steps you can take to make the moving process less traumatic.
This is why SeniorHomes.com is taking a look at the moving process. This week, in the final part of a three-part series, we provide tips from experts on the moving process itself, from packing to unpacking.
