Based on her own experiences of caregiving for her father and also supporting her mother as the primary caregiver, Patti Davis developed a unique model of support, "Beyond Alzheimer's." Since 2011, Ms. Davis has been co-facilitating these support groups, which pair a facilitator with a medical provider, enhancing the team's ability to respond more rapidly to questions and concerns caregivers have. Ms. Davis explains, “In the world of Alzheimer’s, more than with any other disease, the family members are patients, too. Having a safe place to go and talk, cry, laugh sometimes widens the world, and lightens some of the pain.”
