Festivals, holidays and celebrations
Religious festivals, public holidays and celebrations such as weddings, and even just family visits are important social occasions. However, they can be stressful for people with dementia and for their carers. This may especially be the case if a person with dementia is visiting relatives who are not their main carer.
