"That is what learning is. You suddenly understand something
you've understood all your life, but in a new way."
Doris Lessing




 What makes Kathryn’s programs on these topics unique?

  • With a 42 year background in speech-language pathology, these programs bring the perspective of a health care professional whose experience has been focused on assisting those of all ages with speech, hearing, speech, memory, and cognitive challenges.

  • While Kathryn’s experiences include outpatient therapy, rehab centers, hospitals, as well as assisted living, nursing home and hospice settings, most of her career has been spent in the area of home health care. As a geriatric communication consultant she has provided families strategies for communication and activity modification as well as safety recommendations when there is a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia.

  • A key component to these programs is maximizing the quality of life of the older adult while supporting their families, friends and caregivers. Person-directed care must include tools to create a lifestyle care plan and meeting a person where they are in their ability to communicate and participate in activities. Kathryn offers more than 30 products that enhance communication and connection.

  • Kathryn’s programs also reflect her expertise on the topic of successful aging with an emphasis on memory fitness throughout the decades of a person’s life.
