About the Author
Judy Cornish received her graduate degree from Lewis & Clark Law School in Oregon, where she focused her studies on disability law, elder law, family law and mediation.
An attorney now in Idaho, Cornish is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and the American Society on Aging. With previous experience working in mental health and vocational rehabilitation, Cornish brings a diverse background to her work with dementia and Alzheimer’s patients.
In 2010, Cornish founded the Dementia & Alzheimer’s Wellbeing Network® (DAWN) and developed a method of care that decreases stress in caregivers and helps provide sufferers with a sense of well-being.
Cornish is passionate about enabling families to care for their loved ones at home. She currently works with families in Idaho and Eastern Washington, where she oversees care and provides training and consulting services with a handpicked staff certified in the DAWN Method.

Her ability to articulate the realities of living with dementia is truly enlightening. She points out that people with dementia will eventually lose their ability to think rationally, but they never stop experiencing life. Her explanation of mood management and helping people feel comfortable (despite their confusion) has helped me make meaningful connections. This book is a must-read for family and professional caregivers.
Thank you Judy!
