About the Caregiver Cruise
We can all use a getaway, but what about traveling when your loved one has dementia? It can certainly be difficult, and that’s why Insight Memory Care Center offers a Caregiver Cruise! Both the individual with a dementia diagnosis and their caregiver attend, making the program possibly the first of its kind in the country. In addition to the many benefits a cruise offers – the chance for a vacation, seeing new sights, a getaway – the caregiver cruise provides families with a chance to vacation in a safe and supportive environment.
Insight’s first Caregiver Cruise was offered in 2015. We sailed aboard the Grandeur of the Seas down to the Bahamas, allowing 8 couples to enjoy Port Canaveral, Nassau, CocoCay, and Key West. In June 2016 we took another 8 couples on our second annual cruise to New England and Canada. Families enjoyed stops in Boston, Portland, St. John’s, and Halifax. For our third annual cruise, caregivers enjoyed the sunny beaches of Bermuda! We took a glass bottom boat tour, got our toes in the pink sand beaches, and explored the city of Hamilton. We also had some time for shopping, sampling rum cake, and taking advantage of all the amenities onboard the Anthem of the Seas. Our 4th cruise has us returning to New England and Canada in July 2018!
