The Dementia By Day Team
When I started Dementia By Day in 2014, it was simply a blog about working in a dementia care community.
When I expanded to consulting in late 2016, Dementia By Day was just a one-woman operation, and it stayed a one-woman operation for another three years!
As I’ve grown this business, however, I’ve realized the importance of bringing on team members who can help me expand and iterate, along with sub-contractors who bring additional expertise to the table. I am so grateful to my small team for their energy, ideas and enthusiasm!
