Hello I'm new to the forum. My dad has Alzheimers and my mum is doing sterling work caring for him. He's still in the relatively early stages. We live thousands of miles away in British Columbia, Canada. We were hoping that both my parents would be able to come and visit us for a month next year - to give them both a break. We have plenty of room and a large garden. It's beautiful here. My mum saw the consultant with my dad today and he's not advising that my dad should travel. It's the flight that's the problem - nine hours from the UK. Naturally we're upset, but my mum is very down. Does anyone have any experience of travelling with a family member with Alzheimers, and any thoughts or advice? Obviously we take what the consulant says seriously, but if there's any way we can give them a break over here we're keen to hear it. Thank you.
