Grief is hard.  Having dementia is hard.  And caregiving someone through dementia – whether as a family member or a professional – is hard.  Trying to survive through each of these experiences is difficult enough.  But when we have been doing all three for what has often been years of our lives, we can be left exhausted and confused with an overwhelming surplus of mixed emotions and memories with which we struggle to make sense.  Come and join us as licensed grief therapist and dementia educator, Jill Crunkleton, uses her twenty years of experience walking with families through dementia and grief, to guide and encourage us as we seek to thrive in this new chapter of our lives together.

Jill Crunkleton, LCSW
Grief Counselor & Dementia Educator
