Top 5 tips for visits with your loved-one with Alzheimer’s:

  1. Establish a regular visit routine and, if possible, spend time together on the same day at the same time

  2. Take an activity to do that you both can participate in, such as a crossword, newspaper or game – something that doesn’t necessarily mean they have to hold a long conversation or follow a complex train of thought

  3. Have a flexible attitude and go with the flow; no need to stick to a plan

  4. Help maintain independence and try not to treat them like a child, particularly if they are physically capable of carrying out activities

  5. Take it in turn with family for visits and care, so no one person is responsible all of the time
