Pam Ostrowski Untangles Common Myths About Dementia Care
Pam Ostrowski was the first to recognize her mother’s Alzheimer’s symptoms and spent 14 years with her on her journey. This led her to become a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)®, a Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP®), and Certified in Dementia Care® (CDC®). She is passionate about educating families on dementia care, to help them attain peace of mind while caring for a loved one.
Pam pulled together her caregiver experience and her skills in marketing and promotion to write It’s Not That Simple: Helping Families Navigate the Alzheimer’s Journey, the book she wished for during her caregiving years, and created Alzheimer’s Family Consulting, an agency that provides caregivers with one-on-one dementia guidance.
She now works directly with Alzheimer’s and dementia families to help them navigate the difficult conversations and the many processes, decisions, and emotions they encounter on their journeys.
In this episode, we discuss the many levels of dementia care, the difference between loving and caring, and debunk the many myths that surround the dementia journey.
