Specializing in Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias
AGING CARE COACH
Over 5 million Americans are living with dementia, with care provided by over 15 million unpaid caregivers. These care-ers consist of spouses, sons, daughters, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and even parents in some cases. The challenges is that there is no instruction manual or guide book for caring for a loved one with dementia. There is a saying, "If you have met one person with dementia, you have met ONE person with dementia." Individuals experience varying challenges, supports, and opportunities which make each journey unique.
Aging Care Coach can help you gain knowledge, skills, and confidence to face the many transitions along the path of caring for someone living with brain changes known as dementia.
