What care agencies and caregivers have to say:
This approach has transformed my practice.JC, Agency Owner
I just completed the DAWN Method of caregiving course. I found the program has helped reduce stress levels substantially for both the client and myself. My client tends to get upset when he can’t find things. I found the method of chattering while looking really calms him down. I highly recommend this program to families dealing with dementia. Thank you Judy, I really enjoyed working with you.Lisa H., Spokane, WA, Professional Caregiver
Taking the course and quizzes showed me the areas where I was not solid. Having worked with clients gave me experiences to reflect upon. Some I had handled well. Some I learned I will improve upon in the future. This was better than just reading. The feedback from taking the quizzes was reinforcing.JM, Professional Caregiver
I am so impressed at the delivery of information you’ve provided. The testing was extremely helpful and simple to navigate. I feel honored to have the ability to care for these clients. Your training course gives me the confidence to face each day with them. While I feel that I am still learning, there is comfort in knowing I have a resource to rely on. Thank you for that!RA, Professional Caregiver
