"Care-giving for a parent with dementia was, for me a lot, like navigating through uncharted territories. Confusion and frustration reigned supreme. Eleanor's carefully planned sessions helped me to navigate through intense emotions, feelings of isolation and of being stuck etc. to arrive at a more realistic place. To acknowledge and assess my situation in a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment assisted and empowered me to move forward in a more practical and constructive fashion. I am especially appreciative of Eleanor's ability to listen attentively and respond with empathy to our individual circumstances. The group setting provided additional support. Everyone around me is benefiting as I attempt to bring the skills learned to other life situations".
