Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa
Hello and Welcome to the first episode of 2018 – Episode 26;
I’m Mike Good of Together in This.
I’m excited to kick off the New Year with another episode of Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa right here on The Alzheimer’s Podcast.
Thank you for joining me for another podcast where my goal is always to empower you to maintain a positive experience, reduce and eliminate the need for medications, and make your time together with those you care for, the best it can be.

Happy New Year to all of our listeners, and I hope you have had a wonderful holiday season, and are starting to think about what you can do to make 2018 a better year for you, your loved one, and your extended family.
The turn of the year is a time a lot of us reflect on what was good and bad about the previous year. And many of us make resolutions, set goals, or even make promises to do things differently going forward.
In this episode, Christy and I discuss suggestions for how you can assess what is working in the care you provide, what is not working, and how you can keep momentum to make positive change. This will not only improve the care you provide but will also improve your well being.
In case you’re new, Christy Turner, the Dementia Sherpa, 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.
I hope you enjoy the show.
