Texas may be known as the friendliest state, but living here also means that many of the top travel destinations in the United States are easily accessible by car. Since flying with someone who has dementia can sometimes get tricky, you can make your next vacation easier by considering visiting one of these top three vacation spots in your home state that are safe and comfortable for people with dementia.
This quiet little country town is known as the place where "everyone is somebody," and your loved one will enjoy feeling as though they have stepped back into the past. Since everyone in this town is eager to show off their southern charm, you can look forward to a soothing atmosphere in any restaurant or little boutique you visit with your loved one as you stroll through the town square.
When Corpus or Galveston seem too crowded, Rockport provides the ideal coastal vacation. If too much stimulation agitates your loved one, you can still take them out out quieter outings such as the Texas Maritime Museum or one of the many art galleries that line the beautiful downtown area. Active seniors will love visiting Fulton Pier or taking a short boat cruise to observe the majestic whooping cranes.
Located near San Antonio, visiting this city gives you options such as taking your loved one out treasure hunting for antiques and art, or you could head to the nearby Alamo City for a bit of history. River Road Park is also the ideal place to spend an hour feeding the ducks before heading out to enjoy local entertainment at one of the many community events held throughout the year.
As you are learning to deal with the changes that aging can bring, be patient with yourself, patient with your loved one, seek advice and answers to questions, and remember you are not in this alone. Contact a Caring Senior Service team member today!
