Life can bring lots of challenges that might steal your joy. The key to overcoming these challenges is having an optimistic perspective and positive attitude. Toni’s writing encourages you to look beyond the obvious, to see truth that lives in the ordinary...and extraordinary.
Toni wears several hats: wife, mother, friend, CPA, entrepreneur, private school administrator, non-profit volunteer and board member. But it was as a daughter that she had the privilege of being her mother’s caregiver during her years-long battle with dementia. Toni is passionate about helping others have greater confidence and experience joy in their caregiving journey.
When she’s not writing, Toni likes to binge watch historical series and listen to acapella music. Watch for the upcoming Life Giving Dementia Care checklist workbook plus future publications meant to encourage and uplift.
"As an evaluator and treatment recommendation provider of dementias, this book provides a lot of insight from things that potential caregivers would benefit from tracking as well as acknowledging all of the changes that occur throughout the process. Will be recommending to patient's caregivers!"
"I wish I had had this book when my husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s 10 years ago. It has so many great tips on how to care for someone with dementia…very practical and useful information. The author tells us the things to watch for, what is normal and what is something more serious. The best advice she gives is to keep a sense of humor, have patience, and not to have expectations as a caregiver. Someone reading this who is just beginning the journey of caregiving can learn so many valuable lessons from the author’s shared experience. At times she speaks directly to her family in this book…should she ever suffer with dementia. What a beautiful gift! LOVED this book."
"I cannot say enough about this book! My mother has had dementia for about 6 years now and she is still pretty good. It can be very lonely navigating the process on your own, and finding good recommendations and tips on dealing with the journey. As quoted in this book, most older people fear going into a nursing home more than death. This is my mother. I find it comforting that I can use this as a resource for the rest of the journey, no matter what path it takes us on. Thank you!"
"This book captures the winding road of a caregiver in a very readable and relatable manner. The author shares her personal journey in a way that makes you feel like you are talking with a good friend. Like the journey of caregiving, there is humor, pain, struggle and joy beautifully woven throughout each chapter. As someone who has walked a similar path, I found the book healing, affirming, supportive and comforting, even though my time as a caregiver is now done. The author is compassionate and informative, with thought provoking suggestions and practical advice. Whatever you are facing as a caregiver, this book will inform and guide your next steps. You are not alone, and this book will help you regardless of where you are on the continuum of caregiving."
