Elaine Sanchez Headshot 2015

Keynote Speaker: Elaine K. Sanchez

We’re excited to have Elaine K. Sanchez joining us as keynote speaker. She delivers an inspirational message that will help caregivers find the Hope, Humor & Heart in Caregiving.

What’s funny about aging, dementia and caregiving? Absolutely nothing! But based on her own experience of caring for family elders, Elaine K Sanchez knows that it is entirely too difficult to take seriously all of the time. In this hilarious and heartwarming keynote, Elaine will share stories from her unflinchingly honest and uproariously funny book, “Letters from Madelyn, Chronicles of a Caregiver” about coping with the challenges of caring for a loved one who is displaying surprising dementia- related behaviors, including inappropriate sexual behavior. You will come away with a new awareness of the causes behind challenging behaviors as well as strategies for improving communication and reducing stress for the caregiver as well as the care receiver.
