Empath Education, LLC


Edward G. Shaw, MD, MA, is dually trained as a physician and mental health counselor. He was the primary care partner for his late wife, Rebecca, who was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in 2008 at age 53 and died in 2016 after a 9-year journey.

Following training at the Mayo Clinic, Ed was a practicing academic radiation oncologist for 23 years, at Mayo then Wake Forest School of Medicine. In 2010, inspired by Rebecca’s journey, his medical interest shifted to dementia diagnosis and treatment, and with his additional training in mental health counseling, he founded the Memory Counseling Program in 2011, part of the Section on Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine and the Sticht Center on Healthy Aging and Alzheimer’s Prevention at Wake Forest Baptist Health in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The program serves individuals, couples, and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia.

Along with coauthors Dr. Gary Chapman and Deborah Barr, in 2016 Ed wrote Keeping Love Alive as Memories Fade: The 5 Love Languages and the Alzheimer’s Journey, which describes his moving personal story of caring for Rebecca coupled with an innovative use of the five love languages in dementia counseling. His newest books, The Dementia Care Partner’s Workbook and A Leader’s Manual for Dementia Care-Partner Support Groups, were released in June 2019.

Ed speaks locally, regionally, and nationally to audiences of dementia-focused healthcare professionals and care partners on the dementia journey. His dynamic, interactive speaking style and expertise as doctor, counselor, and caregiver resonate with those he shares with.
