Santa Fe , NM
I currently live in Santa Fe, NM. After witnessing what my mother went through with early stage dementia when I was in my thirties, I maintained a writing and graduate teaching career while volunteering for hospice for the next ten years, specializing in helping dementia patients at the end of their lives. In 2019, I became a Certified Independent PAC® Trainer and Consultant . Currently (but let us hope not for long!) I am the only Certified Independent PAC®Trainer and Consultant in New Mexico. I work with medical professionals, caregivers, emergency medical groups (including our local police department), neighbors and families to help them practice better support methods for people living with dementia. I'm currently assisting in care support meetings at The Gloaming, in El Dorado, NM, led by Dr. Kitty Fallon and CPSS trainings with Paula Levy.
