Family Care Partner consultations and classes – Contented Dementia
If you have ever wondered whether it is possible to create lifelong contentment for a parent or other family member living with dementia, this is the course for you.
Our executive director, Cyndy Luzinski, is the only accredited SPECAL Coach in North America, credentialed by the Contented Dementia Trust in England, to teach the SPECAL Method the way it is intended to enable care partners to create lifelong well-being for loved ones living with dementia. (Dementia Together is working with the Contented Dementia Trust to train more coaches and expand the reach in the United States of this practical, effective approach to dementia care.)
Our latest schedule of classes is at Class & Events.
