I am founder and CEO of DCPutnam Consulting. I provide a wide variety of tailored services for family and professional caregivers, health care providers, community businesses / organizations, college / high school students and the general public. I am available for staff in-service and certification training, community education programs and one-on-one family consultations.
I facilitated 11 Alzheimer’s / dementia support groups in RI and MA, including the only FTD (Frontotemporal Degeneration) support group in RI, prior to moving to PA in March, 2019. I was the New England Regional Coordinator for AFTD (The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration) and worked directly with volunteers throughout New England. I have presented at local, state and national conferences. Previously I was the Director of Education for the Alzheimer’s Association of Central New York; Directed a memory-care, adult day program in Michigan; and was the Senior Director of ten memory-care, assisted living communities in New England for Benchmark Senior Living.
I am an experienced, knowledgeable educator with more than 30 years’ experience in education and the health care industry. The love I have for educating others about Alzheimer’s disease and the related dementias, as well as personally assisting family and professional caregivers, has brought me out of retirement twice.
My deep passion for the dementia field and my overwhelming compassion for patients and their caregivers, is the driving force behind my desire to educate as many people as possible about Alzheimer’s disease and the related dementias. Since the inception of my business in 2014, I have personally educated / trained more than 6,700 individuals. Please refer to my FaceBook page, DCPutnam Consulting and website www.dcputnamconsulting.com, as well as my blog www.thealzheimerist.com for additional information.
I would be my pleasure to assist you in providing critical Alzheimer’s and dementia information to those you provide care to through your family or business.
