Private Caregiving – Principles to Feel Competent and Confident

Private Caregiving Principles to Feel Competent and Confident

As many of you know, I cared for my mother who lived with dementia for 30 years. What you may not know, is I also cared for my father with brain cancer for 4 ½ years too.  Their illness and my decision to care for them was life changing and one of the most satisfying things I’ve ever done, but in saying this, the journey also highlighted many things I knew nothing about. Like how to you care for someone who is critically ill or who has a terminal illness. Oh, how I wished there would have been some education for me to tap into ahead of stepping in to the role of a care partner. 

That’s why I am excited to share that I will be participating in “The Complete Private Caregiving Event” on November 16, 2021, featuring expert speakers in the field of elder caregiving and the self-care of a caregiver.  This event is designed to discuss key topics around the many facets of caregiving and the caregiver to help minimize the unknown, take care of yourself as a caregiver, and move with strength and ease while serving our elders.

So, if this is your core calling, if you’re in transition, or if you want to become a private caregiver versus in a public setting, then this event will help you bridge from thinking about it to doing it.  This is an opportunity to serve, have time off for your personal life, and be compensated wonderfully.  If you are a caregiver caring for a loved one, we welcome you, too!

Dementia Map© Reinvents Access to Dementia Resources

It’s Official and I’m so EXCITED!!!

Dave Wiederrich of MemoryCafeDirectory.com and Lori La Bey of AlzheimersSpeaks.com and have created DementiaMap.com, the first Global Resource Directory and event calendar for families and professionals. The two have taken a simple approach to the often difficult and frustrating process of finding dementia resources, with this free-to-use guide.

Dementia Map Global Resource Directory

There is a common obstacle faced by those diagnosed with a form of dementia, their family caregivers, and professionals seeking information about dementia resources. Many websites require a visitor to provide contact information prior to releasing resource details, which is often viewed by the consumer as uncomfortable and intimidating. Frequently, this is to provide referral fees to a “middleman” organization.

“Dementia Map has been a dream of mine for 36 years,” Lori La Bey notes. That’s when her 30 year journey with her mother’s dementia started. She was totally shocked, frustrated and disturbed by the lack of resources available to those in need. “Even today, most medical professionals can’t guide their patients to where they can find help. It’s not their fault. Nothing like this existed prior to Dementia Map,” she adds.

“We created DementiaMap.com to help families and those seeking resources, a direct connection to products and services providers. We wanted to do that in a nonthreatening fashion,” says Dave Wiederrich. “By creating a simple, direct, and friendly website, both families and professionals can utilize one tool to expand their knowledge base and options for care which are so badly needed. We have gone to great lengths to be clear and concise, knowing those that care have extremely limited time to search for resources.”

Dementia Map Events Calendar

Another key element of the Dementia Map strategy is their comprehensive Events Calendar. An event is a valuable way for individuals living with dementia and those who provide care, to gain important information. By consolidating both in-person and virtual events into one global calendar, even more resources are made available.

Professionals and other event coordinators benefit as well. By having visibility to other events already planned, schedules can be strategically designed to avoid overlap and conflict. This can help increase attendance at in-person events, but also the growing base of online meetings.

The Dementia Map benefits extend to the broader healthcare industry as well. Free and economical plans are critical to level the playing field between large and small services. Families deserve all options so they can make the best possible choice for their loved one in an industry being hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. This enables brands large and small alike to more easily reach their target markets.

DementiaMap.com is free for visitors to search for resources

It offers three ways for companies and professionals to become members of the site. A Starter Plan allows anyone to get the exposure they need and deserve at no cost. The Pro and Featured Plans are paid options with increasingly more promotional features and greater brand visibility throughout the site.

Take Advantage of a Limited Time Discount on Paid Plans

Dementia Map is a joint effort between Dave Wiederrich of Memory Cafe Directory and Lori La Bey founder of Alzheimer’s Speaks. Dementia Map is wholly owned by JADCOM Media LLC, an online media publishing company based in Portland, Oregon.

Feeling Grateful on Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving I am truly focused not only being thankful and grateful for my wonderful family and friends but all the amazing people that visit and support all of Alzheimer’s Speaks platforms. Your comments, likes and shares continue to expand our reach and help us shift dementia care from crisis to comfort around the world.

My sincere gratitude goes out to all the people I have been lucky enough to interview over the years. Each person sharing their authentic voice how dementia and/or caregiving has impacted their life. Each giving us tips and resources to help us all live graciously together.

To all the organizations who have hired me to do keynotes, training and/or consulting for staff, families, management and communities.

I pray that each of you have an amazing day that carries over for the remainder of the holiday season and into the new year.

For those missing loved ones that have passed, like I am, I hope you find a calmness knowing none of us can feel great loss without first having great love. May that knowledge bring you a peacefulness and calmness to you.

Please know you have and will always continue to matter to us here at Alzheimer’s Speaks. Sending love and blessing to each and everyone of you.
