Dear Members,

What has been your experience of high quality Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia care facilities based in tropical climes where those with Alzheimer's and possibly their carers are able to have a holiday without compromising on their care needs?

I have not seen anything for a holiday so far away. Rather than find something there you could pay for a carer to accompany you instead and rent a house.

Possibly America but unsure how travel insurance would work and this would be critical.

I have been taking my parents to a rental cottage in Norfolk..hardly tropical but very nice...

I live in a tropical place (Brazil ) all I can say about travelling is get careers to travel with you and make a BIG insurance. Someone that know the patient language and that is dementia trained.

Although some people may say that hiring on vacation place may be cheaper (or not) I wouldn't advise that because it is hard (and takes time and luck) to find someone with dementia training and that speak the patient language.

Every time I traveled with my mom I got relatives to help. Big group. So every time one can help other.
