We are travelling with my parents. When we booked this cruise on Voyager of the Seas over 12 months ago we new that my father had been diagnosed with early onset dementia, but thought (probably foolish in hindsight) that he would be good ( for want of a better word) for 3yrs. My issue is now that he is beginning to show increasing signs of dementia (ie: no good at directions, telling time etc) how do we keep tabs on his whereabouts, he is still an independent man and i don't want to restrict his movements but on a ship this size i am worrying. Also should we advise RCI of his issues and what would they do about this situation.
On a side note, i am wanting to make this a great holiday for my Mother also as this has been a very hard year and coping with all the stress is wearing her down so i was wondering if anyone had ideas on making this a stress free holiday for her, i am planning on taking over as much of dads care as i can but want to do something special for her- she's not much of a fan of spa and beauty treatments.
Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
