Registered Nurse Kathy Stewart has more than 30 years of clinical experience, primarily in university and medical center settings. Her diverse clinical background in renal, neurology, rehabilitation, oncology and geriatrics prepared her for tackling the care required for the assisted living setting.
With all of her experiences, Stewart decided to share what she has learned about caring for the elderly in her book Mom's Losing Her Memory; I'm Losing My Mind.
Her goal is to help those who find themselves in the unanticipated circumstance of caring for their parents as they age and develop memory loss and dementia. Stewart acknowledges the importance of taking care of the caregiver as well as the aging parent.
Her unique approach and success for caring for elderly with dementia is modeled by many others. She focuses on the management of each person's specific symptoms, with positive approaches to keep them safe and emotionally healthy.
