Cohasset, MA (PressExposure) October 16, 2008 -- Beverly Moore, RN, CS, founder of StilMee, The leader in Alzheimer coaching of Quincy, MA and author of the book Matters of the Mindâ¦and the Heart, recently gave a keynote speech at the annual Share The Care caregiver conference held at Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, Florida.
Moore, whose company has coached more than 1,400 families in the care of a person with Alzheimer's or a related disorder and who has more than 40 years of experience teaching and training professionals and para-professionals who specialize in behavior management, presented to an audience of approximately 200. Her presentation, entitled âCircles of Careâ focused on family caregivers relinquishing the âme onlyâ attitude and being open to others in sharing in the care of a loved one with dementia. During her presentation, Moore addressed caregiversâ need for validation and the importance of sharing their care giving responsibilities with those who want to travel the âcaregiver journeyâ with them.
âAlthough the conference was not specific to Alzheimer's, I found a large percentage, perhaps 85-90 percent of caregivers were most stressed by behaviors of those with a cognitive disorder, whether due to Alzheimerâs, stroke, Parkinson or the developmental delay of now grown children,â explained Moore. âI'm not sure who received the most; the audience or me. Caregivers are a phenomenal group of people.â
Moore is a professional speaker and is available for educational public presentations, CEU programs, staff training and in-services. Her book for caregivers, Matters of the Mindâ¦and the Heart sold out at the conference and is available online at Advantagebookstore.com.
