Laura Wayman: Advocating for Positive Alzheimer's Care & Dementia Care
Laura Wayman, a specialist in the fields of Alzheimer's care and dementia care, helps train our caregivers.
Caring for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in the home can be physically and emotionally draining. We understand the challenges faced by family caregivers and we at Comfort Keepers are always seeking ways to help families and provide the best care for our clients. We have recently partnered with Laura Wayman, one of the United States' foremost experts on dementia care. Laura literally wrote the book on Alzheimer's care and dementia care.
A Loving Approach to Alzheimer's Care
Laura's book, A Loving Approach to Dementia Care, was published in 2010 by Johns Hopkins press, and it provides information, communication tools, techniques, and caregiving insight that will help open windows to the darkened mind of anyone suffering from dementia. Laura works with Comfort Keepers caregivers to provide training, family consultations, community workshops, and classes. She also provides on-going training to ensure that each and every Comfort Keepers caregiver that Comfort Keepers employs are well-versed in her tried-and-true techniques for caring for each client needing Alzheimer's care or dementia care. At Comfort Keepers, we help families understand that taking care of the caregivers who take care of the senior citizen with dementia is important in its own right, and we give you the support you need to keep your loved one in the comfort and dignity of his or her own home.
Comfort Keepers can schedule an In-Home Consultation to discuss how Laura's methods, combined with a caregiver from Comfort Keepers, can help your family. Call today to speak with an in home care expert and schedule your free in home consultation to learn more about our Alzheimer's care and dementia care specialists.
