Dr. Tam has worked in dementia communities for more than two decades, giving her firsthand experience with persons with dementia, their struggles and behaviors, and the frustration families and professionals face daily.  Armed with humor and straight forward honest talk, Dr. Tam uses decades of professional experience, personal stories, and compassion to educate caregivers.
