Pesach, the seder night, and the days leading up to it, are in many ways defined by deviation from routine and large family gatherings.
Even for healthy people, times like these can be accompanied by feelings of joy combined with anxiety and stress.
For a person with dementia, these emotions can present themselves in an exaggerated fashion that leads to increased impairment.
Understanding the challenges in coping with this time period, and preparing for them, can be beneficial to the patient and their families as a whole.
Our sincere hope is that the advice presented here can assist everyone to celebrate Pesach with enhanced joy and tranquility.
Please remember… You are not alone!
