What people say about working with Kay
“It has been such a struggle for me to try to figure out how to handle my wife’s Alzheimer’s disease and all the changes that come with it on my own. I’ve never done anything like this before, and therefore have no road map to follow. It can be so overwhelming at times that I can get really depressed and just want to give up. Getting coaching, guidance and support from Kay has made a huge difference in my ability to be understanding of my wife’s brain changes, be a better husband and caregiver, and learn to preserve my own sanity along the way. I highly recommended it.”
Steve M. Coaching client and care partner
“Kay was a keynote speaker at our Summer Institute on Advanced Dementia Care. Kay was extremely well received and asked by many to return. She knows how to connect with her audience in a manner that introduces them to new concepts via academic facts as well as rich stories from her experience as a social worker. She is outstanding!”
Suzanna Waters Castillo, PhD, MSSWFormer Director of Professional Development - Geriatric Mental Health at University of Wisconsin - Madison
“As a daughter, mom, caregiver, and physician, I truly benefitted from the Connecting the Dots class. Caring for a loved one with dementia is a universe of uncertainty, and Kay brings some sense to it. With knowledge, insight, and compassion she helps caregivers navigate what each family currently is facing. I continue to refer to notes and Kay’s wisdom as I navigate the progression of dementia in my mom.”
Laurie C, Denver ColoradoDaughter, mom, caregiver and physician
“As a natural storyteller, Kay weaves tales that serve to inform – if not transform – the journey of life. For those confronting the daunting challenges of chronic or terminal illness, dementia, or end-of-life care, Kay is a priceless resource. So remember Compassion Works LLC.”
