What People Are Saying
Because of Laura, we’re able to offer a great benefit to the families. Working with Laura has been a wonderful benefit not only to me but to Comfort Keepers as a whole. Jocelyn

Client Service Director, Comfort Keeper

I am 50 years old and I’m now caring for my father. There is help out there. Reach out to Laura and ask for help! It’s going to be the best call you’ve ever made. Jennifer

Caretaker

Laura came in with a hands on approach and immediately connected with our management team and our staff… and more importantly with our family members. Rob C.

Executive Director, Woodmark Assisted Living

The Dementia Whisperer helped me transform the way I care for my grandmother, who started experiencing dementia symptoms about 10 years ago. Alice B.

Caretaker

I was at Aegis on Tuesday night and did not have the opportunity to say thank you after your presentation. I ran upstairs to talk to my grandfather about what you spoke about and educate him about what I’d learned so he would understand what grandma is going through. I think you did an excellent job and the way you presented it just made sense. It is still hard to “wrap my head around” not being able to “fix it,” but I’ve learned I can’t stop it, change it or fix it. Just hearing that over and over and trying to rethink about using positive action statements will make me a better grandson and my grandfather a better husband.

So again, thank you for being a leader in this field and sharing your knowledge with so many. You are making a difference in the world!!!
