“Patricia’s presentation to the Alzheimer’s Association Caregiver Conference helped us move out of our traditional sense of guilt for caring for ourselves while we are caring for our loved ones. With a gracious sense of humor, she guided and stimulated us to realize how we all need to reorient ourselves to self-care so that we can provide care for others from a well-nourished body, mind and emotional disposition. We learned to forgive, honor and renew ourselves very quickly with Patricia’s powerful and enlightening performance and message.”
— Julian Dean, Program Director
Alzheimer’s Association, Ventura County, CA
