Dementia in general (particularly Alzheimer?s, its number one cause) wreaks havoc on day-to-day skills we take for granted — not the least of which is our ability to communicate.

If you?re an unpaid caregiver for an ill or elderly family member, you know first-hand how isolating the work can feel. Despite the sheer numbers out there, with a whopping 43% of Americans providing this role for parents or relatives, caregiving can often feel like a lonely and thankless business.

Planning a family vacation is almost a full-time job in itself, particularly if you?re trying to satisfy a wide range of age groups and preferences.
