How is DAWN dementia care different?

There is a revolution happening in the lives of many people experiencing dementia. And it is because of their caregivers. Family members and caregivers trained in the DAWN Method have the ability to change the dynamics of almost every situation.

Learn the DAWN Method® of dementia & Alzheimer’s care

  • Create a less stressful environment
  • Stop unintentionally hurting, embarrassing or belittling someone experiencing dementia or Alzheimer’s
  • Provide support that increases emotional comfort
  • Decrease combative behaviors through understanding the skills lost
  • Enhance functioning through recognizing the skills kept

“When I have the privilege of giving even glimpses of the DAWN method to a family, it’s as if they get to take a deep breath for the first time in a really long time.”
