About Us

 

We know the second half of life comes with surprise and change...some good and some that make you want to run for the hills!

 

When we entered the aging space in 2005 we were thrilled to be supporting families choosing assisted living.  

Now, almost 20 years later, when we tell you some things are going to make you want to run for the hills, we mean it!

We have seen it all. 

The good, the bad, the lovely, the hateful, the inspirational, and the gut-wrenching unexpected.

We were acknowledged by our industry as two of the best at helping families transition.

We were recognized as out-of-the-box thinkers. 

We walked intimately with both the simple and complex issues of aging and dementia.

If you are here, you are likely facing surprise or change.

But here’s a bit of good news...there's no need to run.

We got you!

Change is the only constant.

 

Change doesn’t come naturally.  It isn’t easy.  But it’s a skill you can learn. 

Your brain likes the familiar.

So, change feels threatening. 

It’s emotional. It’s relational.  

Like you, we struggled.

We grieved over the pains of living with dementia.  

We grappled with the limitations of support for families.  

We questioned the healthcare systems in place.

We needed to try new things. 

So, we shifted into advocacy and dreamed big that our work in dementia education and the non-profit world would make a difference. And some of it did. 

What you do matters most. 

 

And then we figured out the most important part of the caregiving equation.

YOU!

If you are open to change...

If you are willing to try new things...

We promise you can make it through this next chapter of your life without the stress and anxiety you might think comes with the territory.  

The You & Me Fundamentals were created to teach you powerful life-affirming skills. 

Not only will you be able to cope well with change, the best news is, you will know how to support and care for the person you love without losing yourself in the process.

Because, let's face it, what would they do without you?

Most of us have an experience in our life when we know something greater than ourselves is at work.

 

That is our story.  

Lee entered the aging space when an executive of an assisted living met her on an airplane and invited her to consider changing career paths.

Robin, when a family friend called and said, “My business is growing so fast. I need your help!”

We laugh now at how quickly we were both called to say "Yes"!

Yes to the amazing opportunity to practice change.   

Yes to the courage it took to explore what is possible.

We are not afraid of change. 

We are good at it.

And you can be too. 

If you support a spouse or partner, care for a family member, or just need a bit of guidance and direction for your own life, we guarantee our coaching services, family resources, and caregiving fundamentals will transform your life.

Are you tired of being surprised?

Do you want to feel less anxiety and fear?

As the saying goes...

If you change nothing, nothing will change.

The time is now.

Hi...I'm Robin Andrews Smith

Aging & Dementia Life Coach

 

A few of my favorite things...

  • I have a master's in Marriage & Family Solution Focused Therapy and 20+ years of experience in behavioral healthcare helping "all the families with all the things". People just like you!    

  • I learned the most I ever have about dementia in 2018 when I collaborated with Orchard Senior Living and piloted the first-of-its-kind dementia demographic model of care for atypical and early-stage 59 to 79-year-olds. Thank you to all of the spouses who inspired our YM Marriage & Dementia program.  You are my greatest teachers! 

  • I absolutely treasure the time I spent working and learning alongside Teepa Snow as the founding Creative Development Director for the internationally acclaimed Positive Approach to Care, LLC. If you haven't checked out her hands-on-care TikToks...do so now!

  • I am forever grateful to Whitney Oeltmann for the opportunity of co-founding Dementia Spotlight Foundation. She continues to grow the Atlanta-based non-profit support providing online education, Dementia Cafes, Dementia Friends GA training, and respite for families.  

Hi...I'm Lee Mohler

Aging & Dementia Life Coach

 

A few of my favorite things...

  • After graduating from Clemson University, I enjoyed a 15 year career with Delta Air Lines. A serendipitous meeting with a senior living executive led me to my true calling...guiding older adults and their families through life-changing transitions. 

  • I learned the most I ever have about dementia when I worked with The Arbor Company. During my 10 years with Arbor, I received ongoing training from one of the nation's most influential dementia care educators, Teepa Snow.  

  • I treasure the time I spent working and learning alongside Teepa Snow as the Director of Business Development for the internationally acclaimed Positive Approach to Care, LLC. Expanding her reach through the development of certification programs was extremely rewarding.
