What people say about working with Kay
“I am a caregiver for my husband who has vascular dementia, and a retired nurse anesthesiologist. I have attended countless trainings on dementia over the years to learn how to understand and cope with my husband’s brain changes, all of which were presented from the medical perspective of the disease. However, I learned more today from your 3-hour dementia workshop based on the family and social work perspective than from all those other past trainings combined. Your workshop made the most sense to my brain and now I finally get it! Don’t stop doing what you’re doing!”
Celeste P.Care Partner and Workshop Participant
“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
“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.”
