Chela Fiorini and her husband Dave Coennen are family caregivers turned advocates who were so inspired by her mothers near decade long journey through Alzheimer’s, they launched Cannabis Helps Dementia podcast, started AlzNotes.com and wrote a movie script loosely based on their experience called Last Resort, an Alzheimer’s Pot Dramedy.
After more than twenty-five years of working as below-the-line crew in film and television production around Hollywood, it’s now their mission to improve the lives of those in relationship with dementia through care gap training and plant-based education. They specialize in private phone/Zoom coaching as well as provide a fun Karaoke sing-a-long cannabis education for senior centers, organizations, and facilities. You can find them on Twitter @CannabisHelps, Facebook @CHDPodcast and cannabishelpsdementia.com or @AlzNotes.com Their book, CBD for Seniors – 12 Things to Know When Trying CBD and Medicinal Cannabis to Ease Symptoms of Aging – will be available soon on Amazon.com.
