Help them understand the disease and how to live productive and loving lives while still working with the real difficulties and challenges that come along with dementia
She will offer real life teaching and training tailored to your specific needs, helping you to feel empowered again and able to work on continuing to build a new relationship with each other as well as supporting you along the way.

Laura’s training on dementia care is beyond excellent. She cares deeply for the individual with dementia as well as their families and caregivers. It truly does take a village!
That same care is evident with her hands on training. I was provided with printed material, suggestions for further reading , also hands on demonstration with a training partner. Laura provided me with skills to navigate a one on one relationship, as a volunteer, at a facility in Western Ma. Your training doesn’t just stop, Laura is available to answer questions,give suggestions on an ongoing basis.
I’m truly grateful for the opportunity to be trained and my volunteer experience.
Laura: I can’t thank you enough for all the information and education on how dementia affects Mom’s brain. As a result, I can communicate more efficiently with her, and try to understand how she now communicates with me. I know it will not get easier, but your help has been invaluable.
Thanks for everything.
Enjoyed very much my experience working with Laura during training for the initial rollout of the “Buddy” system she began at a large local independent and assisted living facility. The volunteers were given excellent background information on how to recognize various traits associated with different types of dementia and associated mental or cognitive issues. My experience with the “Buddy” system was very rewarding!
