About the Author

A fierce advocate for individuals with memory impairments, Bethany Porter worked as an Executive Director operating a memory care facility in South Central Pennsylvania. Upon learning how badly the system of care was failing people with Alzheimer’s and other types of Dementia, Bethany left her role on the inside to pursue her passion of improving the standards of care nation-wide. Bethany founded Memory Care Partners and authored the Trusted Memory Care Quality Initiative, an organization working with memory care facilities to obtain quality ratings based on measures which go above and beyond government standards. Trusted Memory Care serves as a benchmark for families and caregivers as they pursue placement for loved ones afflicted with memory impairment. Visit www.trustedmemorycare.com for more information

625 Days Memory care from the inside; is a must read for everyone. I aplaud Ms Porters courage to publicize what all who care about human life in the industry are used struggling to to wrap our heads around. The stories shared could and are the same in every personal care, assisted living and memoory care facility across the state of PA and I am sure many others as well.
Ms Porter is a crusader and advocate for the rights of the largest growing segment of our population. Those who deserve the utmost respect and care during the last moments of their journey.

If you work in the industry you will relate to and hang on every word, or if you are in upper administration I would hope that this would open your eyes to what is really happening in the facilities you own and manage.

If you are a family member take all the recommendations Ms. Porter offers and do your best not to make this difficult decision with your emotions. Visit the website [...] for more insight.

If you are in the position to make a difference DPW, Office of Aging, ombudsmen....PLEASE DO.

We MUST put the person before the profit! Thank you Bethany Porter for having the courage and heart to write this book.

A few years ago, I had the honor of working for the Author of this book, Bethany Porter at a memory care facility in Lancaster PA. Although the book demonstrates some not so glamorous inside details of memory care, it is a wonderful eye opener for families who are dealing with the heart wrenching disease. I have learned a tremendous amount from this book, even after working with memory care for years. I strongly suggest reading this book if you are dealing with a family member having any type of dementia or thinking of working in the field. It's truly an amazing and very informative book.
