In this episode, I’m joined by Christy Turner, the Dementia Sherpa, for another episode of Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa.
Christy and I continue our holiday theme with a discussion on Holiday Shopping when a loved one has dementia.
We discuss tips and strategies to help you include your loved one but to avoid having a meltdown, so that it’s a positive experience for everyone.
In case you’re new, Christy joins me every other Tuesday for a discussion to help empower you to be successful as you care for someone living with dementia.
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.
