Kimberly D. Scott, a former Video Girl, and now Podcast Practitioner interviews Judy Cornish, a licensed attorney, author, and geriatric care manager who spent almost a decade working for families and people experiencing dementia on the care center she founded. Palouse Dementia Care was built to help clients live a wonderful life and help their families experience less stress.
Before entering the dementia world, Judy was a psychosocial skills trainer for the mentally ill and practiced law in Portland Oregon. When she decided to semi-retire, she moved to Moscow, Idaho. On where she was renting, a neighbor came to see their landlord and stated that they planned to move their mother into a care facility for she was getting forgetful. It was heartbreaking for Judy to hear, knowing that the mother lived there for 56 years. So out of pure kindness, she offered to look after their mother. Within two weeks a lot of families called, asking if she was also able to help them with their parents and after several months she found herself working for more hours until it became fulltime. She hired people to help her cater to everyone who needed their help. She wanted to help other families begin caring for their loved ones in the same way. After seeing the inconsistency and the chaos it brings if not everyone in the inner circle of the client knows how to handle the situation, she then began developing a training program that would help families provide truly strength-based care at home.
Listen to the rest of the interview for Judy shared and discussed the tools of mindlessness, the dawn method, and her insights on how to fully understand and cope when a loved one is diagnosed with dementia. She aims to let everyone gain a deeper and more meaningful connection when a loved one’s cognitive skills will begin to fade.
