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 explore the website to meet the Empath Education team (About Us), view my upcoming speaking calendar (Speaking), learn about our support group leader’s training workshops (Training) as well as ways I can help your organization meet the mental health needs of people living with dementia and their family care partners (Consulting), and gather information about my books and other publications (Books).
