Kathy Laurenhue


Kathy Laurenhue applies her sense of humor primarily in the field of aging. As a multi-media curriculum developer, she gives serious subjects an element of lightheartedness. A course on continence care for people with dementia began by noting, “We can’t be anal about this.” As the creator of hundreds of brain-stimulating activities, her focus is on connecting participants rather than right answers. She figures it’s more fun, less-threatening, and more conducive to conversation to write a trivia quiz on the history of beer than the geology of Georgia. Learn more at www.WiserNow.com.
