Cindy founded and ran an agency that provided nonmedical in-home care to adults for more than 12 years. As the owner, she wore many hats allowing her to learn much about the effects of aging from many different perspectives … from helping responsible adults determine the care needed for their loved ones while at the same time providing the needed assistance herself, or through one of her employees.
Over those 12 years, she came face-to-face with many, if not most, of the issues that individuals must face as the years creep up and overtake them. This required her to educate herself about many different issues so that she could provide the best advice and care possible.
She created company newsletters for her employees and clients to help disseminate some of the information to as many as possible. She hosted a weekly radio show where she shared information about caregiving issues.
More recently, she has published caregiving articles on a few content and revenue-sharing websites and her own personal websites. The exposure that she received through these venues has led her to begin work on writing a book about caregiving, targeted more specifically to Alzheimer’s care.
Because many of her clients were dealing with dementia, and in an effort to provide the best care possible, she went to Boston and studied under Dr. Lynn Lazarus Serper. Under Dr. Serper’s tutelage, she became a certified cognitive educator utilizing the Serper Method. This allowed her to work first-hand with individuals dealing with cognitive difficulties. Clients that she worked with cognitively struggled with various forms of dementia and brain cancer that resulted in the removal of part of the brain.
