About Lessons In Care L3C
Christine Damon (MSEd, MFCS) is the owner of Lessons In Care L3C, a low-profit limited liability company registered in the State of Illinois. A gerontologist and adult educator, she combines her professional expertise with her personal experience as a family caregiver.
Over the past five years, Chris has focused her efforts on community education related to dementia and other issues of significance to aging populations. Often partnering with local libraries, she has created and presented a series of “Brain Matters” programs focusing on disease identification, communication, function, and home modification support strategies for older adults and family caregivers. Chris has also provided Dementia Friendly training to local libraries, first responders, dental offices, local businesses, community service agencies, faith communities, senior centers, health insurance companies, and the financial services industry.
As lead consultant for the Northeastern Illinois Area Agency on Aging’s Dementia Friendly Initiative in Lake and McHenry counties, Chris created and delivered programs to multiple businesses and organizations throughout the community. Most recently, she also worked with the Round Lake Area Public Library to create and deliver the Dementia and All of Us Research Awareness Project for Public Libraries in northeast Illinois and southeast Wisconsin. That project was funded by a grant from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM).
The founder of CareSmart Illinois, Chris is also a co-founder and current president of the Lake County CaregiverNet (http://www.lccaregiver.net), a local not-for-profit dedicated to improving the lives of Caregivers (Family, Friends, Neighbors) in the community by linking them with resources, support, and each other.
