During this time of year there are a lot of holiday pools being made. For the caregivers of a loved one with dementia, it is not always easy to make the right decision, although this holiday is important to recharge the battery. But what are the options for going on holiday with a partner or loved one with dementia? What is to blame? Can you still go alone or is it better in a group? What should you consider? Can you still take someone with dementia on a longer trip? How do you get 24-hour care at home if your loved one can no longer come? What is respite care? These and many other questions will be addressed this evening.

Check-in time is from 19:00. The program runs from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM. Pre-registration is not necessary, you can just enter. You get your first cup of coffee or tea free upon entry. Any subsequent consumption is for your own account. Looking forward to Monday, April 17th; Then the topic of discussion is “Driving with a diagnosis of dementia”.
