Attorney Julie E. Steinbacher and Kristin Daugherty, Long-Term Care Planner are now Certified Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia Care Trainers® through the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners.

Julie and Kristin traveled to Tempe, Ariz., earlier this year to meet with over 75 other leading elder law attorneys and key staff from across the nation. Presentations focused on Alzheimer’s and dementia planning; employee engagement in elder law firms; creating dementia friendly environments and included two options for dementia care certification training with the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners (NCCDP). 

Julie and Kristin plan to use their knowledge, experience, and training to help our communities by education and offering to train other professionals toward certifications such as Certified Dementia Practitioner®. There are currently four staff members from Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak that hold this certification, including three that received it recently.

The seventh annual Dr. Alexander Nesbitt Commitment to Caring Award was presented to Mrs. Linda Bryant during a virtual Healthcare Decisions Day event on hospice and end-of-life care.

Linda’s commitment to caring is exemplified in her role as Heartworks Coordinator at UPMC Susquehanna. Coordinated by Linda, and staffed by dedicated volunteers, Heartworks is a family-based support program that meets twice a month on the campus of Divine Providence Hospital. The Heartworks team is committed to giving children a time and a place to express their emotions when dealing with a substantial loss. Heartworks has guided countless children and teens through the grieving process. Linda considers herself honored and blessed to be able to join together with children and teens as they embrace their emotions and continue on their paths towards self-enlightenment.
