Dementia Management Alternatives

Caring for a loved one with dementia is extremely hard work.  We were pleased to talk with Ellie about alternatives to medications in the management of dementia symptoms. Ellie is a registered nurse and herbalist who worked for 20 years as a hospice nurse.  In the 1990s, she worked with many patients as an herbalist, helping them to discover ways to find comfort. Though she could not offer cures for their life-threatening diseases, she was able to help them extend their lives with a focus on enjoying their time at the end of life.
