Author of the groundbreaking book "Dementia Sucks", Post Hill Press, May, 2018. Having cared for my father, who died in 2004, and my mother, who died on April 14, 2015 after a long fight with dementia, I have refocused professionally to helping others through my experience. My company, Grand Family Planning, provides Family Coaching / Support Services. I am also a professional speaker, offering programs for staying healthy and productive while caring for others. In this way, I share my knowledge and give meaning to the tragic turn of my parents' journey through the misery of dementia.
