    This episode features three wonderful women who have created a wonderful service and experience for people living with dementia. As truly holistic approach, you'll hear about their experience in guiding people living with dementia as well as their families, staff, and care teams. Take a listen to hear more about healthy selfishness, important for all care team members and helping professionals in general!







    About The Creative Dementia Collective:We are three passionate millennial women who have extensive experience in the senior care industry.  Our experience has shown us where the gaps and needs are for people living with dementia and their loved ones.  We saw the need for real and tangible support which, oftentimes, is not available to them through larger, more institutional organizations. 







    The need for additional, deeper support and resources remains a real and ongoing concern, and we created The Collective to address and support these needs as well as to work toward normalizing, not stigmatizing people living with dementia.  Our people-first approach to creatively caring for our clients and their loved ones allows us to build relationships, create much needed educational opportunities and bring awareness to the people behind the disease.
