In this episode of Navigating Rough Terrain with The Dementia Sherpa, Christy Turner, the Dementia Sherpa, and I continue our conversation on how to know when it’s time to intervene or get professional help.
This is the 3rd episode in this six part series. We kicked off the series with episode 36 with an overview of five main areas to look at. And in episode 37, we discussed the first area – Diminished Safety Awareness.
Now, in this episode, we’re going to discuss how to know when changes that we observe in the individual’s home environment require intervention.
I’m so pleased to have Christy Turner, the Dementia Sherpa, as a regular guest here on The Alzheimer’s Podcast. She provides a level of knowledge, empathy, and compassion that’s unrivaled, and that I believe you will find very helpful and refreshing.
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.
Over the next 3 episodes we’ll discuss the remaining 3 areas which include behavioral, physical, and cognitive changes.

I hope you enjoy this episode.
