Caring for persons with dementia brings a unique set of challenges.  Silver Dawn Training Institute equips professionals and loved ones with a new way to communicate with these individuals: introspective improv. 

Their approach is unscripted, unconventional and unapologetic. They deal with real-life scenarios and consider your – and your patients’ – vantage points. Their training is based on the company founders’ experience in long-term care.

Cathy Braxton is the Chief Education Officer of Silver Dawn Training Institute.  Tami Neumann is the Chief Operations Officer and they co-created the Dementia RAW Method,  Collectively they have over 40 years of experience in the long-term care/aging industry.

Come learn and laugh with us as we discuss new ways to live graciously along side dementia.
