Our Coaching Programs

Whether you’re facing a new diagnosis or struggling with ongoing caregiving challenges and don’t know where to turn, we offer you our caregiver family coaching options.

When your loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and related dementias, it’s traumatic and life-altering for everyone. Over time you realize what an all-consuming and exacting challenge 24/7 caring can be.

We offer coaching in both individual and group formats. You select the style that best meets your needs.

All sessions are facilitated by Dementia Help Center founder and president Kae Hammond. This is your opportunity to be guided personally by a recognized expert in the field of dementia family care.

How coaching helps you and your family

1. Understand how to live with the disease.

  Gain knowledge and clarity about the disease, its characteristics and behaviors so you can properly respond and manage them.

  Dispel the myths surrounding the disease so you can separate fact from fiction.

• Learn and practice proven techniques and tactics, so you can interact effectively with your loved one.


•  Understand their safe zones, vision, speech and comprehension abilities so you can adapt with the changes throughout the journey.


• Learn important guidelines so you can make your home a safe, soothing environment.

2. Develop practical, viable solutions.

•  Discover and evaluate your options so you can manage your time and money wisely.

•  Rely on an impartial sounding board and share expert counsel so you can effectively navigate each situation.

•  Find ways to enhance the quality of life for both you and your loved one so you can enjoy times together.

•  Develop a written personalized plan for both short- and long-term needs — your roadmap for managing what comes your way.


• Learn important guidelines so you can make your home a safe, soothing environment.

3. Adapt to your family dynamics.

•  Facilitate a family meeting to produce a cohesive unit so you know everyone is working in unison.

•  Develop and implement ways each family member can contribute individually so you can maintain a balanced daily life.

These clients say coaching helps handle the stress

“Your focus and empathy – combined with your knowledge base – aided us immensely with handling Dad’s dementia and Alzheimer’s condition. Through our private sessions, we learned strategies on how to handle stressful issues which, when put into practice, are amazingly effective! We are grateful for your expertise, and that we found you.”


~ Mary & Jay Lewis, Palm Springs, California 

“Every meeting with you renews me, and I leave feeling strong again. I also leave with new information and tools to apply in my caregiving of George. Each session opens my eyes to a new chapter of this never-ending mystery of a disease with new behaviors and triggers to understand. You are so patient with me, and your ready availability when I need it is deeply appreciated. I’ll get through this. I know I will because of your guidance and support.”


~ Gloria Mistiapolis, Palm Desert, California
