Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q1. My siblings and I are yet to speak regularly. Can we really work together for our parents’ benefit?

A1. Yes. And in the face of Alzheimer’s you will NEED to work together-to support your parents. Collaborating may require re-wiring sibling connections and strengthening sibling communication. Both are addressed and enriched in these sessions.

Q2. What’s the catch? Where’s the long-term commitment?

A2. There is no long-term commitment. Learn at your own pace and pay-as-you-go, one session at a time. Book sessions as needed. The sooner you begin to re-wire you sibling connections, the stronger, more dependable and more valuable your connections will be when you need them. (And you WILL need them.)

Q3. Can’t I just learn about Alzheimer’s from the Alzheimer’s Association ?
