"You are not your Dementia diagnosis."
Let's create new, strong pathways in your brain and get balance in your life so you can get the most out of each and every day starting today.
First, we'll start with a couple of assessments:
One will be designed to assess caregiver stress and the other will assess the loved one's current functional cognitive skills.
Next, on Zoom, we'll set goals that are meaningful to you and your loved one.
You will give me a tour of your home so I can conduct a safety assessment and make recommendations to reduce the risk of falls.
Then we will identify the most challenging areas for you and your loved one, to customize a plan to alleviate those challenges based on your needs and preferences.
We will meet once a month on Zoom and in between either by phone or email as needed to continue to establish systems with resources and strategies for you to address your needs.

"Beth has been an excellent support for navigating the complexities of living with dementia. She provides information and resources to fill the chasm between diagnosis and daily life, has facilitated difficult conversations and reduces the overwhelm inherent with an Alzheimer's diagnosis." -Anonymous
"The techniques Beth incorporated with my husband have immediately allowed him to sleep 1 hour longer for the last 2 days! That's great!"
"Beth has an incredible wealth of knowledge, deep compassion, and gentle honesty, which makes her the perfect guide for people living with dementia or their loved ones."
I believe that people living with dementia are not their diagnosis.
The problem is that upon receiving the diagnosis, people often feel helpless and hopeless and "dementia" becomes their identity.
The truth is: there's no need to be helpless because a person with dementia has a lifetime of experiences to draw from and there are many strategies that most people don't know about that will promote optimal function and peace for the family at whatever stage of the disease they're in.
That's why I am passionate about helping people living with dementia to create new, strong pathways in their brain and get balance in their life...
so that they can feel a sense of control in their life, create fulfilling sustainable routines, and get the most out of each and every day.
