Managing PD During the Holidays

With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, this season can get to be overwhelming. What are some ways you get through the holidays?

  1. With the holiday approaching, it's nice to know we have a dining room table to accommodate everyone including my dad with PD and dementia. My house is familiar to him and he loves our dog. Find ways to comfort your loved ones with PD and make their favorite recipes. My dad loved to bake so I love to make cookies and pies with him. Happy Holidays everyone!

    1. I cannot think of a holiday I don’t enjoy or decorate for and I really don’t find them stressful.
      Although we certainly have traditions, we adjust them accordingly. By eliminating the need for everything having to always be the same or perfect we can relax and concentrate on enjoying one another without predetermined expectations.
