Judy Cornish, of the DAWN Method

Today we are lucky to have Judy Cornish an elder law attorney, author and  founder of the Dementia & Alzheimer’s Wellbeing Network (or DAWN), and the creator of the DAWN Method of dementia care.

Judy believes that if we look at dementia as a psychological condition rather than a disease, a simple pattern of abilities and cognitive losses appears that makes dementia care easier and happier for everyone involved.
