The holidays can be a tough time for families who come together after being apart for so long. Having an elderly relative with Alzheimer's can complicate things, but your celebrations can still be happy and memorable with the right approach. Try sending out a brief email to relatives before they arrive in order to adjust their expectations. You can update everyone on your father's condition and the cognitive changes that have occurred while they've been gone. Encourage them to be patient with your father, and let them know that you appreciate their presence and continued support over the holidays.
