“We had Beth Friesen speak at our annual company convention. Her topic – “Alzheimer’s, Dementia & The Family Consultation; Enhancing Lives/Improving Outcomes”, was perfectly on point. Her sheer professionalism and energy engaged her audience from the very first sentence. Beth’s ability to blend her captivating personal stories with the meaningful content allowed our audience to better associate the senior with the disease. We cannot wait to have Beth back again to future events.”

CEO of Oasis Senior Advisors

“Seniors BlueBook had the honor of having Beth Friesen do a presentation about Dementia. She is AMAZING! Beth’s presentation was an in-depth look at the different kinds of dementia and what those look like in the person afflicted. It is so helpful to have an understanding of what you see as a caregiver or loved one. Beth was so gracious to answer all the questions that came from the audience with knowledge and compassion. Beth Friesen is a dynamic presenter, author and educator. If you have a loved one with Dementia or Alzheimer’s you really should hear her presentation and read her book, “My Loved One Has Dementia… So Why Am I Losing My Mind”
