The Foot-Up View Just Got Better: Holidays and Alzheimer’s

Great idea! Bring the tree to you

Great idea! Bring the tree to you

This picture was taken by my minister friend in PA. He’s had some physical issues at Christmas, but what better way to handle it than this?

My sister-in-law called on my birthday, always near Thanksgiving, and shared this thought: she was missing last year’s celebration, saying she thought it was “the best gathering we ever had.” Then, this year, when she and her family celebrated, she changed her mind. “No, *this* is the best holiday celebration ever!”

My dad said a similar idea: “My favorite holiday is the one I’m having.” Adjust, enjoy what you have, create some new traditions, like bringing the Christmas tree into the bedroom.

I hope at this time of year, you are having a new but wonderful holiday
with the one you care for.

Take care, and stay in touch,
