Caring for a loved one with dementia is extremely hard work.  We were pleased to talk with Ellie about alternatives to medications in the management of dementia symptoms.

Ellie is a registered nurse and herbalist who worked for 20 years as a hospice nurse.  In the 1990s, she worked with many patients as an herbalist, helping them to discover ways to find comfort. Though she could not offer cures for their life-threatening diseases, she was able to help them extend their lives with a focus on enjoying their time at the end of life.

Ellie also wrote a book called Stepping-Stones ~Following a Pathway to the End of Life..

It is a compilation of heartfelt stories of courage, love, and letting go, taken from the journal pages of a hospice nurse who spent two decades at the bedside of the dying.

You can find the book on her website:
