Lori La Bey host of Alzheimer's Speaks Radio talks with Cathy Braxton and Tami Neumann from Silver Dawn Training Institute.  They know caring for persons with dementia brings a unique set of challenges and their Institute equips professionals and loved ones with a new way to communicate with these individuals: introspective improv. 

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

Cathy is the Chief Education Officer of Silver Dawn Training Institute and Tami is the Chief Operations Officer.  Together 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 alongside dementia.
