In this extremely insightful conversation, Marianne sits down with Leslie Fuller, a woman who is not only passionate about helping take care of the aging, but who is passionate about educating on this topic as well.   In this episode we explore:

  • How Dementia plays out in the brain and what it might look like as it’s progressing
  • What you should do if you suspect some form of Dementia setting in
  • The concept of using a strengths-based perspective with your loved ones
  • Tips for loving & supporting someone with Dementia
  • How to connect with your loved one once Dementia/Alzheimer’s has set in
  • Lessons learned from years of supporting the elderly population
  • What to look for in a Nursing Home
  • How to help ease the transition if you must choose placement vs in home care

Leslie Fuller's career has been centered around senior adults for a long time.  She earned a Master's of Social Work with a focus in gerontology and moved right into working as a Director of Resident Services for a senior living apartment complex. After 6 years she transitioned to an Executive Director position of an Alzheimer’s and dementia care community, and then on to the role of the Divisional Dementia Care Manager supporting communities in 13 different states.  Dealing with the Senior population and related challenges is certainly something she has some knowledge on and today she uses that knowledge and experience to provide training, tools, and coaching to communities of all sizes with a goal of teaching how to create a community culture that supports optimal quality of Life for the aging resident, the staff and the families.
