About Trish Laub
In 2002 Trish Laub was told that her father was being treated for Alzheimer's. Originally from Chicago, she and her husband moved to the Denver area in 2012 not only to enjoy the beautiful mountains but also to be closer to her parents.
Just 48 hours after Trish arrived in town, her father experienced an unexpected medical crisis, setting into motion a two and one-half year journey of care. Trish served as not only a caregiver, but also as a manager of both the care team and her parents' medical care. The process continued through their end of life and the settlement of their estate, and has since included the care of her mother-in-law and consulting for others. In all, over a period of five years, Trish has gained over 12,000 hours of experience in providing care for a loved one, including one living with Alzheimer's, taking the final walk of their life with them, and settling their estates.
After spending 18 years developing computer systems, Trish went on to co-found both a national dance education company and a national nonprofit prevention theater company focused on helping at-risk teens. She is a Black Belt instructor of The Nia Technique and has been licensed since 1999. Using her previous computer, teaching, and presentation experience in combination with her most recent caregiving experience, Trish has created Comfort in their Journey to guide people in living with Alzheimer's and navigating the journey of providing dignified care through the end of life.
