The Caregiver Journey: Understanding Dementia From the Perspective of the Person Living With It

We talk often about the difficulties of caring for a loved one who is living with dementia, from our perspective as the caregiver. But we talk less about dementia from the point of view of the person actually living with the condition.

In this Caregiver Journey Webinar, we flip the script to better understand dementia from the perspective of the person living with it. Matt Perrin from Carallel is joined by The DAWN Method’s Judy Cornish for the discussion.

Judy Cornish Creator, The DAWN Method

Judy Cornish is an author, founder of the Dementia & Alzheimer’s Wellbeing Network (DAWN®), creator of the DAWN Method® of dementia care, and a retired elder law attorney.  In 2010 Ms. Cornish founded the Dementia & Alzheimer’s Wellbeing Network in Moscow, Idaho. Through her hands-on work with dementia, she developed a proprietary method for working with people who have dementia—one that helps them develop and retain a sense of security and wellbeing.
