    Duration: 60 minutes

    Hosts: Mary Lou Green, BA, MA, CDP, BLS and Kae Hammond, BA, PAC Consultant, CDP, BLS
    Guest Speaker: Larry A. Griner



  • Learning Objectives:

    • Identify the 5 main symptoms of care partner stress and show how a person’s race plays a role in care partner health according to current statistics.

    • Learn strategies and techniques within the ARPF Four Pillars to help alleviate care partner stress.

    • Discover ways for care partners to reduce stress in themselves and their loved ones by using music therapy.


  • Music has proven to be an easily accessible therapy for care partners and their loved ones. Special guest Larry A. Griner will give voice to the life of a care partner who takes care of his 91-year old mother Norma in Baltimore. Larry will attest to the stresses that caregiving can bring and how his family dealt with care partner burnout. He has found that making music an integral part of each day has brought joy and connection for their mother-son relationship. Larry takes Norma for frequent outings to their local park, and this gives Norma the opportunity to share her voice and amazing spirit with whomever they meet.




  • Kae Hammond, BA, PAC Consultant, CDP, BLS

    Kae Hammond is a family coach for caregivers and care partners, an author, support group facilitator and talk show host. Above all, she is a vital advocate. Kae Hammond founded Dementia Help Center in La Quinta, CA 15 years ago after caring for her mother who had Alzheimer’s disease and her father who suffered chronic health effects and death as a result of underlying health conditions and stress related to his role as care partner. Kae learned “on the job” how to be an effective care partner, and in 2012 she shared that experience in her book, Pathways: A Guidebook for Dementia and Alzheimer’s Caregivers.


  • Mary Lou Green, BA, MA, CDP, BLS

    Mary Lou took care of her father who had Parkinson’s-related dementia for two years until he passed away in 2008, and she is still caring for her 100-year-old mother who has unspecified dementia. She has 15 years experience in caring for her parents in her home as well as becoming the care manager for her mother who now resides in a small residential assisted living home close to her home. Mary Lou has served as the Family Care Consultant and Community Liaison for Dementia Help Center since 2017.  She has found her deep passion in supporting, educating and coaching family members who are caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia and in creating awareness for the vital role that care partners provide within her community.
