Why Should You Attend?

“An important missing link for those seeking information and support on caring for elderly parents. Far more than a checklist of financial and healthcare issues to cover, it provides the compassionate companionship families need to make this journey together with love, courage, and humanity.” —Susan Piver, author of The Wisdom of a Broken Heart and Thee Hard Questions for Adult Children and Their Aging Parents

“There are so very many books on the market directed to ‘managing care’ and ‘handling’ dementia patients – and so many more dementia patients needing help – that it’s refreshing to see a more human, caring approach focused on the basic elements of living (joy and meaning) rather than ‘management’ in Creating Joy & Meaning for the Dementia Patient. –Midwest Book Review
