Planning on going on a cruise? Flying to somewhere far away? A new booklet from Alzheimer’s Australia on Travelling and holidays with dementia tackles some of the practical challenges that can arise when a person with dementia is going on holiday. The booklet includes lots of suggestions and tips, and is set out alongside some lovely holiday photographs and quotes from family carers about how they prepared for their travels.
The booklet looks at travelling by various different ways – sea, air, car and public transport – and sets out some of the challenges and some strategies to consider. It looks at planning holidays, tips about accommodation, and things to consider on return.
