If you have a close friend or family member with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), you may already be aware of the many challenges that come around each and every holiday. But with a little change in perspective and some fresh new buying ideas, holidays such as Valentine’s Day can have new meaning for caregivers-including spouses of a loved one with AD.
The media overwhelms us with messages about the commercialized version of Valentine’s Day-such as wining and dining your loved one, buying chocolates, flowers and diamond rings for your loved one. But if you are the spouse of a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease, you may be stumped at how to celebrate this year.
Although most people in western cultures buy into the mass marketing ploys of the media in that buying extravagant gifts is what holidays are all about, the truth is that the selflessness of being a caregiver for a spouse with AD is one of the most priceless gifts you could ever give.
