Take A Journey Inside The Mind of Someone With Dementia Symptoms

What Clients Are Saying

I have to say that as Director of Marketing and Sales, attending her trainings, meetings with families in partnership with her, working the floor and the support group, I have gained a wealth of experience in this area myself. It has brought me a new understanding of those diagnosed with this disease. It also has given me perspective in that just because you have been given a diagnosis of Dementia does not mean life has to stop for you, quite the opposite is true. You can have a rich, rewarding and fulfilling life if those around you, those that care for you and love you understand that they can’t stop, fix or change what is going on. The understanding that we need to meet them where they are, make them feel loved, safe and secure so that their final journey on this planet is one of happiness and peace. If we strive to do that, we have done a good job. Laura Wayman has the heart, desire and understanding how to do this and has made it her life’s mission to have everyone get on board the ”Laura Wayman Train.”

Director of Marketing & Admissions, The Reutlinger Community

WOW! So very helpful. After having a session with Ms. Wayman I felt a great sense of relief because she gave me a workable blueprint for caring for my husband. I learned what I’m doing that is beneficial and where I can make adjustments in my approach to caregiving to better help him. The concept that one with dementia has a “broken thinker” so I need & others need to think for him, in essence, fill in the gaps, was most enlightening. Maybe most importantly, ‘can’t stop it, fix it or change it.

Because of Laura, we’re able to offer a great benefit to the families. Working with Laura has been a wonderful benefit not only to me but to Comfort Keepers as a whole.

Jocelyn
Client Service Director, Comfort Keeper

After several years of caring for my grandmother and immersing myself in the problem of dementia, I now fully support the idea that as many people as possible should know about dementia. Worldwide. The more people who know about it, the more people will be prepared when faced with this problem. The less stress and suffering will be experienced by both the patients themselves and those who are forced to care for them.

I don’t mind if you share my story. For a long time I felt alone. But gradually and thanks to people like you and volunteers from the charitable foundation here in Moscow. Thank you for the book! Thanks to everyone who is not silent, but talks about dementia on YouTube and on the Internet. Now I will also look at the people around me carefully and always ready to help if I see that someone next to me is facing a similar situation.

When we began looking for guidance to prepare our continuing care community for the completion and opening of a new Memory Enhancement Center, we were introduced to Laura Wayman. We were fortunate to find a perfect match in Laura so early in our planning process. Laura’s unique ability to quickly understand our community culture, along with her suggestions to craft a diverse training experience across our community, helped us to understand why she is widely known as the ‘Dementia Whisperer’. Our entire staff, regardless of role or position, gained an understanding of all aspects of dementia – the various stages, variety of individual symptoms, the sometimes-tricky challenges, and even the moments of wonder and love – because of Laura. Despite a global pandemic, Laura’s ability to pivot from an initial in-person training plan to a socially distanced, masked, and then fully online program, ensured we were ready for the opening of our new building. Because we are now a more ‘Dementia Aware’ community, we will continue training current and new staff. We also have plans to extend Laura’s program to all associated with our community including, our families, and our general resident population. We are proud to be continuing our work with Laura and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking support with dementia awareness and training.

I have been a preacher for over fifty years and counseled so many. When my wife got dementia, I didn’t know what to do. Wayman’s group sessions and her book not only gave emotional support but gave insight into how to care for my wife. Not only did I learn, I was so blessed with the time I had with my wife. Even the wise choice I had to make about which care facility I had to put her in as she approached the end of her life was made by what the sessions taught me. I am so grateful.
