“I took Kae’s class and it changed my life! My family member with Dementia is doing so much better after I followed recommendations from Kae Hammond. I highly encourage family members caring for a loved one to take this class!”
“You are brilliant Kae—you provided me such clarity about Al’s disease, the why’s for his behavior and the strategies for becoming effective in managing his constantly changing moods, patterns and behaviors. I’m not fighting the reality any more; I’ve come to acceptance. And you were right—I am more at ease. Bless you.”
