Mastering the critical tools to improve care performance within medical facilities or inside a private home is attainable through Dementia Awareness.

Since 2001, I have championed compassionate dementia care through cutting-edge consulting and training that gives caregivers at all levels the tools and perspective to truly improve the quality of life of the individuals in their care.

Through workshops, trainings, master classes, seminars and one-on-one consultations, I have engaged audiences on today’s best practices and methods that lead to compassionate care and meaningful moments and connections.

Whether you care for someone in-home, or run a community care facility, the following training programs can help you become Dementia Aware and provide you with the tools to succeed in a rapidly changing and challenging care environment.
