What family members are saying:
“Dr. El offered compassionate, knowing, and tender advice. It was as though she was a sister, friend, psychologist, and nurse wrapped into one nice package helping me and my siblings to navigate these difficult waters of aging parents.”

“I felt very comforted by your words in asking the questions about assessing the situation in a person. I was able to take a look at the big picture and the levels of dementia. Your questions of being safe, agitated, frightened, the mood swings and medications has really helped me to understand all the different levels about mother as well as myself. As you stated, it’s not just what the person with the dementia, mother, is experiencing but what the caregiver, me, is going through as well. As it stands now mother is happy and I am coping with everything very well. I can’t thank you enough for all your words and assistance with this situation.”
