Helping those living with dementia find joy in everyday life.

Living with a loved one with dementia

Dan taught me so much about dementia and living with a loved one with dementia. In my case, it was a special aunt. He showed me how to look beyond frustrating behavior to identify an unexpressed need, and then address that need. He modeled enjoying the aspects of my aunt’s personality that were still intact. He worked to make her feel safe and cared for. With Dan’s help, acknowledging my aunt’s unique needs and attributes, I feel we provided her with a quality end-of-life experience.
