Read this testimonial: "Dementia is a sad and awful disease and the its journey can be long, scary and lonely – both for the person and the caregiver. This is how I felt as my mother’s dementia progressed. Feeling desperate after exhausting my known local resources, I decided to take a chance and reach out to Laura after reading her book “A Loving Approach to Dementia Care.” I sent Laura a simple email sharing my concerns and need for support to develop a plan, not really expecting to have a response for a week or so. Laura responded back to me in three hours, with words of understanding and willingness to define a care plan. Our dialog the next morning began with her simply listening to my story, my feelings and my questions. I knew after those first 15 minutes that I was no longer alone. Together that day, I learned to reposition my mindset, to redefine “caring” from my mother’s perspective (calm, confident and present) and how to enable real and practical steps to best support my mother. No two dementia journeys are the same and yet we can learn from one another and gain strength from reaching out and sharing both successes and challenges. Laura’s book and council changed my perspective and I will continue to look to her in the future for expertise, support and kindness." - Dana
