As the Dementia Whisperer and an internationally recognized dementia care speaker and author, my mission is to change the world and how all dementia care services are provided to those who are suffering from various cognitive impairments. I want to give meaning and purpose to not only those who have been diagnosed, but to their caregivers through peace of mind. Wherever anybody is throughout the caregiving journey, they are never alone with the proper support. It might be hard to see at first, but it is possible to live an enhanced quality of life and enjoy improved relationships.
My presentations aim to empower attendees with the understanding that their own care and well-being are just as important as the care of their loved one or those in their professional care. I provide easy-to-implement strategies and techniques to manage stressors in their own lives, and ways to communicate more effectively with those living with dementia symptoms. The format of my presentations are designed to deliver information in a way that is refreshing, uplifting, hopeful and relieving. When attendees leave, I want them to feel like they can take on any challenge with patience, optimism and love.
When someone becomes Dementia Aware, they can begin to understand more about the experience of those in their care. This often leads to a more positive and cooperative outcome for everyone involved and allows caregivers to navigate situations with new confidence and ease that can be useful when solving the most delicate of behavioral and emotional challenges. It’s not a matter of if they will come up, but when, and sometimes on a daily basis depending on the cause of dementia.
I would love the opportunity to collaborate with you during your next event or conference and share the invaluable knowledge I’ve curated throughout my career. Together, we can make the world more Dementia Aware. Please reach out at [email protected] to talk more.
