The goal of Phil’s Friends is to partner with CarePartners caring for loved ones traveling the Dementia Journey.

The most recent Alzheimer’s Association Reports reveal sharp increases in the prevalence, deaths, and cost of care for people with the disease. As the number of older Americans grows so will the number of people living with Alzheimer’s disease. Resulting in a significant impact not only to Georgia’s economy but most importantly to their families and caregivers. And given the long duration of this disease, the strain on Alzheimer’s caregivers and their families can last several years and produce serious declines in caregivers’ physical, emotional, and financial wellbeing.

Having traveled this path with my family and, as a caregiver herself, Lori founded Phil’s Friends (https://phils-friends.com/) to help others on this journey and improve their ability to care for their “loved ones” with memory loss disorders for as long as possible. With the support of the Coweta/Fayette communities, Phil’s Friends will provide services in three areas: Education, Medical Equipment, and Home Modifications.

Lori is a Ret AF Vet with a passion for helping others. In 2019 she established Phil’s Friends, a 501 C 3 non-profit charity whose mission is to educate and council CarePartners providing care to loved ones living with Dementia. After experiencing the difficulties firsthand of how Dementia can impact a family it became obvious to Lori, God was leading her to help others understand what it means to experience cognitive decline. Through her workshops, Caregiver Support Groups, and one on one counseling Lori helps CarePartners overcome the daily hurtles and stresses of constant changes in their family member.

Lori graduated from Campbell University with a Business Degree, received an FAA certification as an Aircraft Dispatcher, and was a business owner in Peachtree City for 9 years where she cared for and pampered 4-legged family members at My Pampered Pooch. She maintains certification with the Rosalyn Carter Foundation as a Dementia Trainer and Teepa Snow as an Independent Counselor and Trainer.
