Comfort Keepers Oakland, CA Partners with Laura Wayman for Alzheimer's and Dementia Care
Laura Wayman, the "Dementia Whisperer" helps train our Caregivers in Alzheimer's and Dementia Care
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 and dementia care.
A Loving Approach to Dementia 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 to provide trainings, 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 someone with Alzheimer's or dementia. At Comfort Keepers, we help families understand that taking care of the person who takes care of the person 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 – please call Comfort Keepers anytime at (925) 961-9728.
