Dear Barbara,

Thank you so much for coming & sharing some of your wealth of knowledge on Dementia: Symptoms, Trigger & Interventions.

You took an exceedingly complex topic & gave those of us with no medical training or education a non-emotional intro to what Dementia is & is not. From there, you set us on a journey of understanding ways we can prepare for & even sometimes prevent its upsetting behaviors.

I've always found even the idea of Dementia to be a bit scary, but your plain English descriptions & personal stories allowed me to listen & learn & sometimes even laugh with you.

Thank you again,


Cate Kinney
