Her current passion for supporting families dealing with dementia issues came after years of relating to both her elderly parents as they steadily declined in memory and awareness. She created a family support tool entitled, “My Lights Are Going Out…But It’s Not Dark In Here” that includes a journal, 7-step guide booklet and an audio CD. It focuses primarily on seven behavioral lessons she learned while serving her parents. Click here to view Dr. Paula speaking https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvPgCHYPzxL7bQ2rY640b1A
