Empowering Caregivers Who Care For Those with Dementia or Alzheimer's Disease
Our mission at Coping Dementia Training is to educate healthcare providers, the community, and families about dementia and Alzheimer's, and their behavioral impacts.

I want you to know what a pleasure it was to be a part of your training. I left feeling so much more confident and knowledgeable in my role here at the Alzheimer's Association. You are an excellent teacher and I hope our paths cross again in the future. Thank you for what you do!

Personal In-Home Assessment
In home assessment and coaching are available for individual caregivers or families providing care for a loved one. Coaching is most effective with multiple family members present.
Recently, I have traveled the path so many of you are currently experiencing. I am currently a caregiver for my mother. Previously I cared for my father as well before moving him into a skilled nursing facility. My personal experience has made me acutely aware of how naive I was to the depth of the spiritual, emotional, financial and physical impact of dementia on the patient as well as the family. My passion was ignited to provide caregivers education and coaching to alleviate some of the despair and offer hope through knowledge and behavior interventions.
Why You Should Choose Coping Dementia Training
My experience has been both professional and personal. The additional training and life experiences ensure an empathetic relationship with the caregivers since I have been there. My in-home consultations are unique and meant to minimize stress of going to another location to the caregiver. This way, the person with dementia remains in their own home environment. The ideal would be to coach family and friends also. As the disease progresses visitors tend to decrease because of not knowing what to expect or cope with the situation. There are interventions to connect with your loved one even though they do not remember who you are.
The cost of my services is moderate due to the financial contributions of caring individuals and corporations who donate to this important cause.
