Yes, it is possible to connect to those who suffer from dementia  & Alzheimer's Disease. 

For the past ten years I have been a caregiver and have learned how to tap into the heart and mind of the dementia patient.

The dementia sufferer's life has been diminished to small moments of time. By learning how to harness these moments the caregiver can create contentment within the cognitive confines of dementia and Alzheimer's Disease.

My guide teaches the caregiver how to connect the dementia patient to the world around them so they can experience the fundamental pleasures of life like nature, beauty, spirit, humor and joy.

My personal caregiving journey has been one of deep sorrow and great joy. I am hoping that my experiences as a dementia caregiver will leave you uplifted and brimming with hope.

I provide advice to caregivers concerning every aspect of the patient's life.

I share techniques that honor the individual that still resides deep inside each dementia patient so that they may continue to experience the simple joys of everyday life.


About Me

After earning a B. S. degree in Business Administration from Ohio State University, I worked in the field of communication sales, eventually moving into sales management in California and Michigan. I then took my management skills into a more creative environment by managing an interior design establishment, where I was able to create quarterly publications and advertising campaigns.

Since taking on the challenge of caring for my mother-in-law who suffers from dementia, I have found great fulfillment in helping other families deal with this heartbreaking disease.

I have had numerous essays published in newspapers and monthly magazines. I currently live in Williamsburg, VA.
