Today I’m super excited to announce a new collaboration between The Alzheimer’s Podcast and The Dementia Sherpa.
Starting today, and every other Tuesday, Christy Turner the founder of DementiaSherpa.com will join me for a discussion to help empower you to be successful as you care for someone living with dementia.
We’re calling this series, Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa.
If you listened to episode 15 on Resolving Dementia Behaviors without Medications or you follow Together in This, then it’s likely you’ve already met Christy and are familiar with the high quality of expertise she provides.
She is a Certified Dementia Practitioner, Certified Dementia Care Unit Manager, and Cognitive Stimulation Instructor. She has run award-winning memory care communities in assisted living and skilled nursing levels of care.
Using her 16 years of experience in working with over 1,100 people living with dementia and their families, she’s developed a system that helps families move from crisis management to confidence.
The holidays are quickly approaching, and while this can be a very challenging time, there is also a lot of opportunity to turn these challenges around and create positive times together.
In this episode, Christy and I talk about Halloween and the things you can do to make this a great time for everyone.
