About Us

Cognitive Solutions LLC designs and manages complex stakeholder engagement processes, providing services to local, state and national governments and commercial clients. We are global content matter experts in Alzheimer’s and dementia related policy, care and support. We have an academic and practical background in gerontology, public health and community development.

We are focused on two unique areas in Alzheimer’s and dementia: Finding and sharing solutions that support persons living alone with dementia and improving hospital care and its related transitions back to home and community for persons with dementia.


Patients with Alzheimer’s disease, other dementias and delirium are universally prevalent, yet markedly unique in today’s acute and primary care environments. Their experiences within the healthcare system are overwhelming and their impact on healthcare costs is alarming.
There is a better way
