If you are taking someone with Alzheimer’s disease out to visit relatives or friends there are some things you can do to prepare your host or hostess for your arrival. You may want to explain your visit may be short, or that in the middle you may need to take a walk or shift the person’s attention to another activity. You can also bring along a favorite photo album, book, or audio tape to help occupy the person. While your there, take pictures of friends and relatives to preserve a happy memory for yourself and the person.
