“Ann has been incredibly helpful in assisting me through the uncertainties and difficulties of living with my wife’s early-onset dementia. When it seemed that nobody else had the skills and experience to understand what we were facing, Ann has been consistently available with caring guidance, both personal and practical. Given the emotional and logistical burdens of dementia, this support is invaluable. In addition to her day-to-day advice which has been so useful, we now have an excellent caregiving team in place, as a result of Ann’s connections and suggestions. We are happier and life is easier, because of Ann.”  Ben Shaine, Port Townsend, WA
