Dallas, Texas (PressExposure) March 14, 2012 -- Beverly Moore, RN, CS, founder of StilMee(TM), the Leader in Alzheimer Coaching, based in Quincy, MA, and the author of the book Matters of the Mind and of the Heart, has recently licensed a coach, Janet Williams, in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.
The company has been serving clients in eastern MA and RI since 2000. StilMee, the Leader in Alzheimer Coaching provides in-home coaching for family caregivers; educational programs and training; public presentations and assisted living residence support. The company works closely with families, day programs, assisted living residences, elder law attorneys, neurologists, and home care companies that seek to specialize in dementia care.
With a mission to help caregivers better understand a person with memory loss and a goal of helping people sustain positive family relationships through the dementia journey, the company has coached more than 3,000 families in the care of a person with Alzheimer's or a related disorder.
"According to the Alzheimer's Association, more than 10 million baby boomers in America will develop Alzheimer's disease.
