In 2005, she founded Positive Approach® to Care (PAC), a company that provides dementia care training, services, and products around the world. A core principle of PAC is that, in order to obtain the relationships and outcomes that are desired, the first and most important shift must originate with each person’s own willingness and ability to change.
