“Very interactive, No dull moment, Very informative.”

Reynaldo Morales, PT
Physical Therapist

“Mike was a very engaging presenter. His passion for his work and his servant heart showed through in the way he presented the material. He was able to engage all the attendees throughout the two days and pushed us out of our comfort zone to truly learn how to go out and present the materials to other clinicians and to direct service consumers.

I especially love the additional marketing tools that he provided the group and the continuous encouragement that we go out and teach the material to others and not just sit on the learning we have acquired. “

Kailani B. Talton, OTR/L
Occupational Therapist

“I learned the types of Dementia and how to assist the client to engage in functional activity to prevent or decrease agitation of the caregiver and client. I also learned how to conduct an interview regarding the client’s abilities, physical function and cognitive status to best determine what level of assistance is needed to provide the best support. This course helped me to understand how I can utilize my experience and knowledge to assist those with dementia and provide support the caregiver.”

Yolanda Bowdre, OTR/L
Occupational Therapist

I enjoyed the course! It was amazing and Mike made it super fun for us. I loved it that its via zoom, very convenient for everyone! Ive learned so many ideas on how to manage my patients through the experiences of other clinicians. The course was worth of my time, highly recommended!!!
