About the Author
After putting her career on hold to take care of her dad, during a time when he needed additional care, Trisha Waskey learned first hand the struggle of dementia and Alzheimer's. After her fathers passing in December 2002, she realized that she needed to do something with her knowledge. She went to the local community college and earned her (CNA) Certified Nursing Assistant, (GNA) Geriatric Nursing Assistant and Medication Technician Licenses. This allowed her to continue her work in elder care. Since 2002, she has actively worked in assisted living facilities, provided in home health care and taught seminars on working with the elderly. Her work continues today.
