Bittersweet Holidays

Dad, with his nephew, Gary.

Brighten up a senior's holidays by visiting them this holiday season. It will be a precious gift.

"The holidays are bittersweet when a family is struck by Alzheimer's disease. It's a time for caring and sharing and reflecting on the year that's past and the year to come – and with Alzheimer's, the future is tough to face. But there are some bright spots.

People with Alzheimer's, more than anyone else know how to live in the moment. For just an hour, an afternoon or day, joining with your loved one in that moment can make for a very special holiday."
