What Clients are Saying...
I initially met Tami in one of the dementia support groups I attended and then worked with her privately. My mom had Alzheimer’s and Tami was extremely knowledgeable and empathetic. She provided me with techniques on how to handle my issues and challenges surrounding my mom’s dementia. Tami’s guidance and experience helped me get through this sad and difficult time.
Tami has been an invaluable support for me and my family during many trying times. I have always appreciated her warmth, empathy, candor and clear directions when they are greatly needed, especially at times when things have been very stressful and tough. I highly recommend Tami to work with you as you confront serious issues with your loved one’s care.
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.
Tami’s wisdom, compassion, and knowledge literally saved my life when I was taking care of my wife with Dementia.
