Hello caregivers! WELCOME TO SHINE YOUR LIGHT. I hope to be of service to your family or care community. I am trained in dementia care, yoga, pilates, and Montessori education. Feel free to reach out with your specific questions and concerns. Let’s see how I might be able to help you manage the difficulties and dark times that are part of this painful passage.
I began Shine Your Light so that I could help more people access the information and practices that have been so important to me in my own experience caring for my aging father as we faced Alzheimer's Disease.
I am committed to helping you and the elders you care for achieve the best possible experience of caregiving.
Bonnie Clayton-Loewy holds a Master's of Education and two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Psychology and Religious Studies. She is trained in Alzheimer's and dementia care, pilates and yoga. She has extensive training in mediation, particularly regarding elder issues.
What our satisfied customers say
Bill and Kathryn
"I found Bonnie through a referral from Scripps. My initial goal was for some talk therapy related to our facing long term illness. Being in our late 70’s the door opened to looking at many issues including our personal relationship and expanding from there... She has an enlightened spirit that is wonderful and inspiring. Her varied experience adds to the high quality sessions we have together."
John Carter, MD
"Mrs. Loewy has intimate familiarity with Alzheimer's disease having cared for her father for years with this disease... She is an extremely professional individual who was loved by the families that she saw. Her intelligence and compassion enhance her effectiveness greatly."
Senior Companion Project Director, Our Family Services
"Bonnie has an excellent understanding of elders who suffer from a dementing illness, and was able to convey very complex information to the Senior Companions... Now that Senior Companions have learned why people act as they do with a dementing illness, and have several suggestions as to how they can best help, I have seen a huge change in the program!"
Attorney and Mediator
"Several of my most trusted sources immediately pointed me to Bonnie as the go-to expert. She was able to provide a thorough explanation or the underlying neurological decline of the aging, as well as the conflicts that occur within families when a parent is no longer able to care for him or herself."
Community Director, Via Elegante
"Bonnie's extensive research in this field and her unique insight on the mental and emotional needs of individuals with dementia has enriched our dementia care program and would bring a wealth of positive influence to any family or community touched by this disease."
"Bonnie's approach to helping Barbara to gain body strength - her use of music, her enthusiasm (she is ALWAYS "up") has Barbara looking forward to her appointments with Bonnie - she has come to love her and her visits."
