Thank goodness for this podcast and all the resources! The information provided is always so relevant, useful, and the topic narrow enough to keep the podcast length doable for busy bodies like me. As a child taking care of her mom with dementia, l've found the info so helpful and love the delivery of the info. Thank you.

Podcast Review
I cannot recommend this dementia podcast enough! The episodes are short to the point focused on a specific topic. This is not an interview format with multiple people talking. It is Bre'anna in her kind soothing voice providing you with specific easy to understand bite sized nuggets of valuable information. So thankful I found this podcast!
