My mother, 87, has mild vascular dementia and my 91 year old father, who is still going strong, is her primary caretaker. We live in Texas and I'm planning to drive them to their place in Mississippi this summer for a 2 week stay. This is something they used to do on their own several times a year for month long stays. This past year my mother hasn't been able to pack and stressed so much that my father opted out of taking the trip. He is getting caretaker burnout BAD and needs to get away, so this trip is more for him than her. My hopes are to give my dad a much needed break so he can enjoy his time fishing and piddling around their place without having to worry about mother. This place is his love in life. However, I don't want to put any undo stress on my mother. I feel confident that she'll be fine once we're there because she loves this place, too. It's where they both grew up so there are a lot of memories we can share. I'm looking for tips to help her cope with getting packed, travel tips and dealing with new routines while we're there. Any suggestions or experiences will be appreciated!
