Hi there – I just wanted to say that we (my sister Deb and I ) really enjoyed your and Karen’s presentation and the information was very helpful. We are trying to support our Dad, who is 90 and looking after our Mom, who is 89 and struggling with dementia. We will follow through with the suggestions and share them with our Dad. Was great to see you – was that Emma beside you in the beginning? Hopefully, we’ll see you both in person one day soon!
Hello Karen & Jennifer – short note to thank you both for that very valuable Dementia Tips session on Monday.
It’s only Tuesday and I have already implemented at least two of the tips to great success – such a help to have your insight and practical suggestions to work with our mom’s new reality……….thanks again!!
Thank you very much for yesterday’s presentation.Karen’s was exhaustive, clear, lively and very interesting.
She made me walk again through all the steps and stages of adaptation. I hope it will bear fruits and help others. Congratulations to you and to her. Please convey my sincere thanks to Emma’s for her help to log in.
