Essential Strategies for the Dementia Caregiver offers a fresh and practical approach to the challenges faced by wives, husbands, and adult children who care for loved ones with dementia. Using the 4 Ds of Dementia Care – detach, document, diffuse, distract – caregivers can find solutions for behaviors ranging from shadowing to wandering to medication refusal. The PACE paradigm emphasizes the importance of prioritizing the caregiver’s well-being while navigating the dementia journey:
P = Permission for Trial and Error
A = Acknowledge Their Reality
C = Compassionate Care
E = Empower Yourself

What We’re Hearing…
In August 2015, I found myself in a position of having to care for both of my parents with dementia. I didn’t know anything about the disease and I felt helpless and hopeless. After attending Tami’s support groups and working with her privately, things got much better. Meeting Tami has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. Tami has a way of knowing the right answer for any problem. Her advice and connections have helped me in many ways. She is uplifting and encouraging. I honestly don’t know how I would have made it through these very difficult years of my life without her in it.
I found Tami, thankfully, as I was starting to feel overwhelmed with a mom who was showing signs of dementia. No one should go through this experience without having solid support. Tami is an expert on dementia/Alzheimer’s, and is available for major and minor emotional ups and downs. She has helped me tremendously with her knowledge and helpful suggestions. After a couple of years, I have adapted with more humor, kindness and compassion because of this relationship/team I have found with Tami. I will forever be thankful.
I have had the pleasure of working with Tami professionally and knowing her personally for several years. I readily recommend her services because I know first hand the levels of compassion, caring, warmth and professional expertise she brings to her clients. The feedback I have received after referring Tami is consistently positive. On a personal note, Tami’s expertise helps me be a better resource to others in the elder care world. To sum it up: Lives are improved when Tami touches them.
I have been fortunate enough to have attended Tami Anastasia’s support group for dementia caregivers for 4+ years. I don’t know what I would have done without Tami’s expert advice, support and compassion. Tami is truly an angel in my eyes, and I would encourage any caregiver that needs help and/or guidance to get in touch with her. With Tami, I never felt like I was in this alone. She is the best and I’m very thankful for her.
I have observed Tami’s professionalism, her integrity, her expertise, and her compassion for others, particularly for families of those living with dementia. She gives her ‘all’ to everything she does. She is enthusiastic, positive, effective, and determined to help others in any way possible. I know that Tami is highly respected in the elder care field as an expert in the care of people living with dementia. It is a pleasure to work with Tami, and I highly recommend her to any client in need, as well as elder care professionals striving for the excellence she provides.
