ABOUT OUR WORKSHOPS

“These sessions have been my resource for education, there’s so much to learn! Even though everyone’s stories are unique, we are all going through the same thing and it’s wonderful to have the support and be open to other possibilities. I’ve been able to share what I’ve learned with my family out of state who don’t have this resource.” – Rachael

“This was the best workshop I’ve ever been to, Maribeth Gallagher's pace made it easy to follow and was rich with information. Five stars!”
– Suzie Cox

“This was really, really great and incredibly helpful. I take notes and then pass along the information to my family.” – Sharon Georskey

“My experience and perspective is different since my father passed 12 days before I found these classes. I wish I had known about them earlier, this information could’ve helped me understand the common phrases and situations people with dementia say and go through (Ex.‘they’re taking my money!’). Now I’m learning what I can to help me build my own business to help others.”
– Julie Schwartz

“I like knowing you’re not alone.”
– Helen Schiefelbein

“I can listen to Maribeth 24/7.” – Marc Faigus
