Welcome to Empath Education
Welcome to the Empath Education website. My name is Ed Shaw (a.k.a., “Empath Ed”), founder of Empath Education, LLC, whose mission is to provide empathy-empowered education and training for dementia care partners and healthcare professionals.
I am dually trained as a physician and mental health counselor, and was primary care partner for my late wife, Rebecca, who was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in 2007 at age 53 and passed away in 2016 following a 9-year journey.
Please navigate through the website to meet the Empath Education team (About Us), check out my books and other publications (Books), link to my recorded webinars for mental health, medical, and other healthcare professionals (Professional Ed), explore topics I’m passionate about when speaking to audiences of family care partners (Caregiver Ed), and consider ways in which I can help your organization educate and meet the mental health needs of people living with dementia and their caregivers (Consulting).
