The Hospice Chaplaincy Show with Saul Ebema: Judy Cornish: My Journey to Dementia Care and Creation of the DAWN Method.


With her background in traumatic brain injury, mental illness, elder law and disability law, Ms. Cornish brings a distinctive set of abilities to her work with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

In 2010 Ms. Cornish founded the Dementia & Alzheimer’s Wellbeing Network (DAWN®) in Moscow, Idaho. Through her hands-on work with dementia, she developed a proprietary method for working with people who have dementia—one that helps them develop and retain a sense of security and wellbeing. The DAWN Method® is simple enough to be used by caregivers in the home and works in care facilities as well. It targets the emotional distress that accompanies cognitive decline so that behaviors are avoided and caregiver stress is minimized.

Today the DAWN Method is in use with seniors in Northern Idaho and Eastern Washington, using a two-tiered care system of case managers and dementia care specialists. Ms. Cornish provides training in the DAWN method and consults with families in the Northern Idaho and Eastern Washington region.

Learn More About Coach Pain By Reading His Bio Below:

I am honored to share my story with you so that you can see the path that brought me to where I am today.  You see, I believe that it is through difficult situations and great pain that the human spirit grows and character is developed. And my story is a testament to this.

I started in the fitness industry when I was only 18 years old, and I knew that it was where I belonged.  I had always been into fitness and enjoyed being active throughout  my whole childhood. I was involved in Martial Arts, Wrestling and Football throughout high school and was generally a very physical person.I have been in the field for 26+ years and plan to stay here for many more.  While I always enjoyed my work and was successful with it, I was not as passionate then as I am now.  The passion didn’t come until much later.  The passion came through the most painful loss I have ever experienced…the death of my mother.

It was my mother’s life: her sacrifices, support and guidance that made me the man I am today.  It was her death that birthed a passion in me.  After I lost my mother, I had a renewed sense of purpose; I vowed that I would make her proud.  It was during this painful season that I realized that I was put here to help others, to guide others to be their best selves, and to continue striving to be my best too.My parents were always an anchor for me.  They raised my siblings and I to be the best we could be, instilling  a deep faith and the principles of Respect, Love and Discipline; principles that I apply to everything I do even to this day.  After my mother’s death, my father became a beacon for me.  He demonstrated a great strength even through great tragedy.  He inspires me to push through the pain and grow stronger through difficult situations.

Since then, I redefined my purpose.  I became more passionate about helping others to reach their goals, but even more I longed to help them evolve into their best selves.  I work with clients to help them move forward towards their future instead of dwelling on the past.  One of my favorite analogies of this evolution is when a caterpillar becomes a butterfly.  After the butterfly emerges from the cocoon, he never goes back to being a caterpillar.  Once you start living as your true self and growing into your best self, you don’t go back to who you used to be.

Since this awakening, my path has led me towards many great career opportunities.  I have worked as a Spartan SGX trainer and had the incredible honor of giving motivational speeches at Spartan and Battlefrog events along with at the OCR World Championships.   I have spoken to groups of first responders and to youth at schools.  When I speak, I do not write a script, I speak from the heart and in the moment.  My hope with each motivational speech is that I connect to the hearts of the audience, that they will be able to feel my energy and passion and that it will ignite something inside of them too!  I view every speaking opportunity as an honor and an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.As far as training goes, I have developed my own unique style that represents who I am as a fitness coach.  I have built the foundation for my training on my years of experience with various approaches.  My training sessions are all about functional movement, but I am constantly changing things up to keep my clients interested and challenged.  This style is not for everyone, but those who want to be pushed and who want to become mentally tough as well as physically strong love my combination of movements and motivation.

Ultimately it has been the painful situations in my life that have grown me the most.  It is because of my loss and my struggles that I have become who I am today.

Who am I?
I am confident.
I am humble.
I am hungry.
I am eager.
I am ambitious.
I am hard-working.
I am willing to do what it takes.
I am Coach Pain.
MY EXPERIENCEI have over 26 years of experience in the fitness industry and as a motivational speaker.
Some of my professional accomplishments include:

  • Motivational Speaker
  • Fitness Coach
  • Nutrition Specialist
  • NPC 2011 Midwest Ironman Physique
  • American Ninja Warrior Participant – 2011, 2012
  • Jeet Kune Do & Wrestling Background (12 years)
  • Naval Special Warface Orientation Course Instructor
  • Announcer and Motivational Speaker For Spartan Race and BattleFrong Series

The Hospice Chaplaincy Show with Saul Ebema: Meredith Sinel On Emotional PPE and Hospice Care During the Pandemic


From graduate school, she was appointed to work on the Women’s Campaign where she collaborated with Jewish women from around the state of Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts, assisting in leadership development and strengthening women’s voices in philanthropy. 

After her first child was born, she pursued her Chaplaincy dream and worked in Miriam Hospital’s cancer unit and surgical intensive care units during her CPE residency. She worked for over 2 years at the VNA Care New England as a Hospice Chaplain and for the past 6 years (and currently) as a behavioral health clinician in Emergency Departments. 

Her unique perspective and ability to help others suffering from mental health and/or addiction and serving those individuals at end of life, is the reason Meredith says she feels honored to do this holy work.
