Just a Call Away

As a dementia and Alzheimer’s care specialist, I guide families and clients through the healthcare delivery system, create care plans, and provide referrals from organizations, suppliers of medical supplies, and healthcare information. I regularly report to you and your PCP to ensure everyone receives the best care possible. My service is available to clientele of all ages.

Facility Placement

I arrange facility placement if necessary. I am a former D.O.N. for advice on where to go. Unlike other services offered in the area, I do not accept payment from facilities. I make decisions and suggestions based on the best placement for your loved one.

I will represent you in the decision-making process. After placement, I continue to work with families. Children of aging parents who live elsewhere can be certain that I am just a phone call away.

“Your Future”

I provide a remarkable service that allows you to determine whether you will contract this dreadful disease with a 95% degree of certainty. Dementia starts 20-30 years before the symptoms show up.

Please get in touch to experience the power of knowledge. Limited numbers of appointments are available weekly. Please visit my YouTube channel to learn more about my work.
