Joe Kleid, CDP
Joe is a Christian, a husband, new father and a life-long advocate for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia. He is a Certified Dementia Practitioner and Dementia Care Placement Specialist who’s popular blog “The Alzheimer’s Guy” now has over 40K social media followers.
Joe has spent the last decade speaking with thousands of families that are dealing with the crisis of Alzheimer’s and dementia. As National Director of Sales Training for one of the country’s top memory care providers, he has worked only with Alzheimer’s families. He currently serves on the board of an Alzheimer’s non-profit, The Laona M. Kitchen Foundation and is a Genealogy and Photography enthusiast who loves to learn about, document, and present the legacies and personal stories of the seniors he is helping.
He will tell you that he has “over 30 years of Senior Living Experience” as his grandmother, Ruth, came to live with his family when he was a small child. (She later developed Dementia/Alzheimer’s, during his early teens, and served as one of her caregivers along with his mother and other family members.) Her passing and influence on his life propelled him to work with other seniors and families who have been afflicted by Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
