Caregiver Coaching – Dana Territo
Wanna be a Caregiving Champion? Join “Coach” Dana Territo as she helps you through “Basic Training,” meaning that she will guide you through some skill and confidence-building maneuvers that will help you “know all the drills” of Alzheimer’s disease. From learning about the disease, to tips for managing day-to-day “workouts,” this Lunch-n-Learn provides information on ways for caregivers to grow in awareness and knowledge of the disease journey. Don’t wait for that “Hail Mary Pass.” Be proactive, form a “game plan,” and get on the “roster” for “Team Alzheimer’s.”
Dana Territo calls herself “an old soul” as she has always shared a passion and love for the older generation, particularly those affected with Alzheimer’s disease. For over 30 years she has worked and advocated for this population. She was on the committee that started the first Alzheimer’s Walk Fundraiser in Baton Rouge in 1995 and continued volunteering for that Walk for over 25 years. Dana retired in late 2018 as the Director of Services for Alzheimer’s Services of the Capital Area, but continues to be a dedicated supporter for the Alzheimer’s population. Since 2013, Dana has voluntarily written a weekly Alzheimer’s Question and Answer column in The Advocate, a Baton Rouge-based newspaper, and currently volunteers as a Stephen Ministry Leader, a caregiving ministry through St. Aloysius Church, as well as assisting families through Hospice in His Care. Dana recently received the national “Tandy Spirit Award” from Caregiving.com in acknowledgement for her spirit of service to others. Her book, “What My Grandchildren Taught Me About Alzheimer’s Disease,” is slated to be released next fall (2022) by Equinox Publishing. Dana completed Religious Education studies from St. Joseph Benedict College and an Internship in Spiritualty at the Archdiocesan Spirituality School in New Orleans, and she also has a Certificate of Gerontology. She lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with her husband, David, and near their two sons and daughters-in-law, as well as their four grandchildren.
