The Dementia Specialist

Kathy Adkins, Certified Dementia Practitioner

Hello, I'm Kathy Adkins, Kansas' only certified dementia practitioner instructor. Over my 40+ year career in health care I have dedicated myself to finding and applying the newest and best methods to cope with, and yes even prevent, dementia. This is what I do.

You don't have to feel hopeless

From thousands of hours of research studies and decades of hands-on learning, I can share modern coping strategies for all who are touched by dementia, from professionals to family and friends.
