In episode 36, we had the absolute pleasure of speaking with Judy Cornish, author, founder of the Dementia & Alzheimer’s Wellbeing Network (DAWN®), creator of the DAWN Method® of dementia care, and a retired elder law attorney.
Judy is a maverick in the caregiving community and I hope you will take the time to listen and take notes! We could have talked for, at least, another 2 days!!
Her two books , The Dementia Handbook and Dementia With Dignity, take person-centered dementia care from theory to practice by identifying the skills not lost to dementia. Through DAWN, Cornish provides online training programs for families and professional caregivers, as well as certification courses for agencies and facilities. Judy's life work has been making dignified dementia care and aging in place available for all.
