In EP 35, we spoke with Marisa Pasquini, an international educator for caregivers who serve people with dementia and Alzheimer’s. She has spent the last 12 years developing strategies that help caregivers survive the challenges of caring for people with dementia. She takes an empathic approach in assessing the needs of clients with dementia and teaches caregiving skills that allow the caregiver to accept and enter into the persons' "New Reality." The goal of developing these skills is to decrease the fear experienced by people with dementia, helping them feel safe. Her methodology gives caregivers confidence, creates inclusion for people experiencing cognitive decline and an empowered way of being in relationship with them. Marisa is especially skilled at understanding the rhythm of the person with dementia, and focusing on the state of the caregiver who is overwhelmed, grieving and in need of self-care.
Marisa a Certified Alzheimer's and Aging Educator and a Certified Dementia Practitioner. She's the founder of the National Home Care Academy and provides certified training for professional caregivers, and support, education and consulting for family caregivers. Marisa is the author of the Amazon Best Seller, Surviving Dementia Without Losing Your Mind.
