Over the last few episodes we’ve been discussing professional memory care, and last week we discussed how moving a loved one into memory care doesn’t have to be an inevitable outcome of dementia.
So in this episode, Christy Turner, The Dementia Sherpa, and I kickoff a discussion on bringing the elements of memory care into your home so that you can avoid memory care and keep your loved one at home.
This discussion is based on Christy’s Memory Care at Home workshop that she offers online and in public settings around the country.
Christy has run award-winning memory care communities in assisted living and skilled nursing levels of care.
She is a Certified Dementia Practitioner, Certified Dementia Care Unit Manager, and Cognitive Stimulation Instructor.
Using her 16 years of experience in working with over 1,200 people living with dementia and their families, she’s developed a system that helps families move from crisis management to confidence.
In next week’s discussion (episode 48), Christy and I will continue our discussion on ways to keep your loved one at home longer, safer, and happier. This discussion will be based on my signature course – Adapting Your Home for Dementia where I teach you how to manage 4 elements of a Dementia Friendly Home.

I hope you enjoy this episode.
