“That was an extremely informative and well-done presentation. I had agreed to attend your presentation despite thinking I knew everything I needed to know about Dementia and really didn’t expect to get anything out of it. Was I ever in for a surprise. I quickly realized I knew very little! I found myself thinking about it for several hours and days processing my new understanding. Thank you for that.”

Hiring Nadine Jans became a turning point for me. At the time when I found her website, I was deep in the muck of grief, depression, frustration and so much anger. I could not seem to pull myself out of this. . I wanted my positive mind back. I was overwhelmed with resentment because life threw me a misadventure and I just could not fathom how to handle it.
I never expected to be converted into a caregiver for someone with dementia.
Nadine taught me how to ‘re-wire’ my brain, using amazing tools, which I was able to personalize to my own situation. As a mentor, she demonstrated how to adjust my thinking, to enable me to confront perplexing surprises which came flying my way. She assisted in showing me how to become better acquainted with my own brain, and feelings, and made me realize how I let them be my own worse enemy. Eventually, with time and determination, I was better able to maintain a calm, accepting relationship with the stranger in my house.
I highly recommend Nadine‘s support and gentle guidance. She is very flexible to her client’s needs and she has a good empathetic understanding of human vulnerabilities, and is always a great source of encouragement. I tip my hat to her!
