Recent Comments From Attendees

Thank you so for your visit to Dubuque.  I want to tell you first thing this morning that you continue to inspire all of us to bring our “A” game with seniors.  One thing was clear after your presentation.  There is no short supply of how we can serve!  I will never forget you story of the chicken who kept losing her feathers only to find a secret society at the bottom of the cliff.  You had all of them from Dubuque in front of you yesterday and you inspired each and every one of them.

Thank YOU for the work that you do nationwide.   It became clear to me yesterday that when our well runs low for the work that we do, who is there to fill us up?  You are!  Thank you so very much.  I am good to go for a long, long time after the inspiration, encouragement and “just get it done” approach that you model for all of us.

Many blessings and continued success.

Lori has a true gift for connecting with her audience on an emotional level.  All participants were truly engaged and evaluations of her presentations were very high.  She is a gifted speaker as well as a wonderful person.

Lori is an incredibly dynamic and compassionate speaker. By sharing her own story, with all of its highs and lows, she made it okay to both laugh and cry – and our audience did both! Lori recognizes that life with dementia still has with meaning, and we admired her work to restore dignity and humanity to people with dementia and their families. It’s an encouraging change in how we talk about caregiving!

Leslie Lindsay, Community Outreach Coordinator – Alzheimer’s Alliance of Smith County

First of all, Tracy, myself and our Nurse Manager, Jacque, wanted to express our appreciation for your visit to Dubuque for our Dementia Summit! We found your talks truly inspiring and benefited immensely from your passion and knowledge on Dementia. Your personal stories were so touching, thank you for sharing…one of our family members also attended the conference and was so moved by the day’s events that she was still in tears as we were heading home!

As we continue with our dementia friendly initiative, we wanted to add to our training materials with some of the additional resources that you shared. Do we have your permission to add your resources to the resource section of the manual that we leave with businesses? We would not change a thing…we would leave everything in its entirety…your name/website/contact info all on there and just copy the handout with your “Alzheimer’s Speaks” header on the top. Please let us know how you feel about this!  (The Answer – Absolutely YES!)
