Since the early 1990's, Jytte Lokvig has coached families and professionals about Alzheimer's. She's designed life-enriching programs and activities for care facilities. Her international expertise shines in seminars and workshops promoting healthy environments based on dignity and humor. She is also credited as being the catalyst for U.S. and Canadian-based Memory Cafes. 

Lokvig's book entitled, Alzheimer's A to Z: A Quick-Reference Guide, has been translated into Portuguese, Spanish, and Japanese. It's been celebrated as a "uniquely effective guide for caregivers," with combined medical expertise of a medical doctor and practical wisdom of an experienced caregiver. 

We'll discuss a plethora of topics with Lokvig, including: coaching, agitation, diet, driving, hallucinations, listening, medication, obsessive behavior, pets, routines, singing, undressing, vitamins, word substitution, and more. Lokvig holds a PhD in management with a specialty in Alzheimer's care and a master's degree in Art Education.
