LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION

for Kae Hammond from

Ivor J. Nazareth, MD MRCP.

 

I have known Kae Hammond for over ten years, she is a very dedicated person and is involved with patients who have Alzheimer’s/dementia.

She applies the same the dedication and passion in providing services to patients who are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s/dementia, services that a beyond the ability and scope of treating physicians.

These services include, but are not restricted to, assisting patients and their families to face the reality of Alzheimer’s/dementia. The many issues that families have to deal with include psychological issues, legal and financial issues etc. Most families are in shock when they are given the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s/dementia and they need emotional as well as social support including how to navigate the various problems (mainly social ones) as their loved ones deteriorate over time. She is also very successful in helping family’s deal with placement services appropriate to the situation.

She also acts as a go between so that patients are referred to Adult Protective Services or other health services when appropriate. These are invaluable services that a practicing physician does not have time to address. She is very passionate about helping patients with Alzheimer’s/dementia and I have found her to be an invaluable resource to turn to.

I wish her well in the future.

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

During my husband’s suffering with dementia, Kae Hammond and Mary Lou Green of the Dementia Help Center were a god-send. They are both VERY caring individuals who, thanks to their acquired knowledge through firsthand experiences with the disease, make up a first-rate support system for caregivers with practical advice and emotional support. I have seen Kae and Mary Lou go way above and beyond the call of duty when the caring of my husband sometimes became overwhelming, and I know that they will do likewise for anyone requesting their services. I can’t thank both of them enough for what they have done for me, and I very highly recommend them.

~ Monika Hoover, Palm Desert, California

Thank you Kae Hammond and Mary Lou Green for coming into my life. When my husband was beginning to show signs of dementia, I was luckily referred to Kae.  She was kind, listened intently and had a wealth of information.  The advice of updating all our legal matters (e.g. Living Trust, Wills, Health Care Directives, etc)  was invaluable.    She told me about the challenges of caregiving, what to expect from my husband (nothing) and how to respond. A while later I joined Kae’s support group for caregivers.  This is where I met Mary Lou who was a co-leader of the support group.  Mary Lou is one of the kindest, caring, giving individuals I have ever met.  She constantly researches tools/information to help us.  She reaches  out to those who are unable to join the support groups (as small as waving hi through their window during coronavirus to help sell their car). Mary Lou Green and Kae Hammond are like angels on this earth.  They continually update their information on Assisted Living and Memory Care Facilities.   If in the future I need to place my husband in a facility, I will totally rely on them for their help.

~ Carol Hanson, Manhattan Beach, California

As a new member of the Dementia Help Center’s THRIVE support group. I felt immediately comfortable talking about my circumstances. Quietly and confidently, Mary Lou listens with great interest. With her deep intuitive nature, she calmly suggests tools to help you cope. It could be a resource for help thru agencies she has thoroughly researched or even a phrase you can use to cope with a situation with our loved one. I truly feel that I have a very strong and caring safety net around me.
