Offering something everyone on the Alzheimer’s path needs, knowledge, is one of the benefits of adding an Alzheimer’s cruise to your vacation list. This one-of-a-kind cruise is a unique experience for people in the early stages of Alzheimer’s and their care partner. Cruising together you’ll gain valuable knowledge, important friendships and happy memories.
On this podcast episode I talk to Lisa Marie Chirco, the woman behind this cruise. With an extensive background in event planning as well as a history of caregiving. Lisa puts together a must take cruise. For example, people newly diagnosed with Alzheimers have lots of questions. In addition, their care partner has questions and concerns unique to themselves.
On the inaugural cruise attendees had daily opportunities to learn. Many of the topics covered will make their journey together as easy as possible. During morning sessions on board, the topics covered included financial planning, safety, caregiving techniques and more.
Learning in a small group environment fosters a sense of camaraderie where friendships can blossom. As a result, you leave the cruise with the knowledge that you can handle what’s coming. In addition, you’ll have a group of people on the same journey to lean on when needed.
Give this episode a listen. I’m certain when you’re done, you’ll be adding this cruise to your must-do list.
