Dementia care training and coaching
for caregivers and families.

Strength-Based Dementia Care.

Less stress. More companionship. Better communication.

There is hope for those with dementia and their caregivers.
It lies in the way we provide care.

Dementia does not take away all our skills. When families understand what their loved ones can still do, they can create a more comfortable home caregiving environment.

The DAWN Method® is the kind, strength-based, person-centered approach to dementia care that trains families and caregivers to capitalize on the skills dementia does not take away.

There is a new way to look at dementia.
