One recent trainee reported a day after the training, “I used some of the new tools that I learned from you with my dementia client today – and I was totally blown away how they worked!!!!! . . . it all went so smoothly and well, I still can’t believe it! And what almost made me cry was that in the middle of dancing she says to me “You are a really good person, you keep putting up with me even though I’m so difficult”!!!! I was so touched . . . And I remembered why I do this work. So THANK YOU for EVERYTHING – it was already more than worth it!”
