Surviving and Thriving During the Holidays

Event Description

Tuesday, November 24, 10:30-11:30 a.m.

Special Presentation by the Alzheimer's Association 

The holidays are often filled with opportunities for togetherness, sharing, laughter and memories. But they can also bring stress, disappointment and sadness. A person living with dementia may feel a special sense of loss during the holidays because of the changes he or she has experienced. At the same time, caregivers may feel overwhelmed maintaining traditions while providing care and this year presents even more challenges due to social distancing and the risk of serious illness due to COVID-19. Join us for a discussion about tips on how to survive the holidays. In addition to examining caregiver burnout, this program will identify ways to create a safe environment for loved ones during the holidays. 
 

This class is for residents of Fairfax County and the Cities of Fairfax and Falls Church only.
