About me - Hi, I'm Fran.....As a longtime dementia care provider and educator, my mission is to promote quality of life for adults living with cognitive decline due to Alzheimer's disease or other dementia related condition.  I strive to learn from the experts and share that knowledge and my experiences to assist individuals and their families to continue to LIVE the Best Life possible; no matter the challenges they face; to help others "see" the PERSON and not just the disease and to promote the use of music, life story, mindfulness, natural wellness and movement to support this effort. 

In 2011 I. started Dementia Living Solutions as a dementia focused company and shortly after developed Movement Music & Memories , a multi-sensory movement to music & enrichment program designed for those living with mid to later stages of dementia.  Recently I added a new fitness option, Walk4Memory to meet the needs and abilities of those living in early stages of decline or mild cognitive impairment.  After having learned the life story of literally hundreds of elders over the past 10 years, I now offer Life Story Work as a service with the goal to connect as many elders to their sense of "self" as possible, not only for Legacy purposes, but for the practical application in healthcare settings, where this information is crucial to good care.

I am a geriatric LPN, a Certified  Dementia Care Practitioner, Best Friends Approach-Master Trainer, RCI-Dealing with Dementia Trainer,  SFA-Fitness Professional, Walk 15 Teacher, Aromatherapist in training and an avid student holistic wellness.  I volunteer for Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey, where I developed an inter-generational program that connects youth to elders with dementia using the power of music to foster memories & sense of self and connection for both.   .I am a graduate the Memory Bridge "I am a Bridge" program and on the advisory board of the Alive Inside Foundation.
