Quotes From Previous Students

"I liked learning from people who work in senior living communities. It was a long day, but it was valuable because I had negative impressions of so many people who work in nursing homes. But, after meeting them I see how kind and caring so many are. I know they will do a good job for my mom. I wish I would have taken this course in the beginning instead of towards the end of my moms life!" - MS

"Cynthia is an outstanding presenter with knowledge from the field. She brings in real world examples from the perspective of the person with dementia and family dynamics. The group was diverse with a doctor, social worker and other community positions. I learned new perspectives." -LD

"I learned to think about 'their truth' and not just my experience. I finally understand why people cover mirrors. I didn't know smell was the longest lasting memory but I see it at work all the time." -  JS "I have a better understanding of dementia after taking this class. Everyone who works in the field should take this class. I wish my administrator would!" -  MB
