About the Author:

Author, speaker, trainer and family caregiver. Molly Carpenter, M.A., brings years of personal and professional senior care experience and training to families dealing with dementia care. Her passionate interest in older adults started early – as a high school student working in an adult day care program – and continues as an adult and a professional. The reality of caregiving is never far from her experience due to her work in skilled nursing facilities, adult day care centers and continuum of care communities.

In her current role, Carpenter works with a team responsible for ensuring that the Home Instead Senior Care® network’s 60,000 caregivers worldwide have the resources necessary to effectively provide quality care in the home and understand the importance of their work enhancing the lives of those they serve. This combined background makes her uniquely qualified to author a book designed specifically to help family caregivers provide care to those with dementia in the home.

Carpenter’s work as part of the team that developed a person-centered approach to Alzheimer’s care has been adopted and adapted globally and is critical to the success of the Home Instead care approach for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia. This work has been endorsed by leading experts in the Alzheimer’s industry and adapted for family caregivers throughout the world.

Carpenter holds a Bachelor of Science degree in family science with a gerontology specialization from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and a master’s degree in education with a gerontology specialization from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. She is currently enrolled in the Human Sciences/Gerontology & Ph.D. program at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. Her personal experiences helping to care for her grandmothers have further inspired her career.
