Compassion is at the Heart of Our Care

Lyght Bulb Moments® was created by a Nurse Practitioner out of frustration. The result is better care for people living with dementia.

What We Are

Persons living with dementia (PWLD) are human beings with feelings and emotions. They had a life before their brain was attacked. They had family responsibilities and a career. This is when their bulb shined the brightest. As these people have aged, their bulb has started to flicker.

But it’s still burning and their lives aren’t over. Quality life moments can still be experienced. That’s the mission of Dr. Tiney Ray to help people living with dementia (and the people around them) have important “Lyght Bulb Moments.”

Dr. Tiney has worked with the senior population for over 28 years, serving in Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities, and caring for hundreds of PLWD. She saw that treatment with medications would not necessarily change “behaviors.” Through careful study with medical teams, staff, and caregivers, she determined that if there was nothing medically wrong, adding medications was not the solution. There was another approach—one that would create more “Lyght Bulb Moments.”

What We Do


The care partner’s fears, frustrations, and stress.


Changes in communication, memory loss and behavior using best care techniques.


Their home safe and supportive.


The changes in brain function.

28 Years as Nursing Professional.  I’m passionate about improving the quality of life for people living with dementia.

Meet Dr. Tiney

“We work with patients who have been diagnosed with dementia, their families, and medical and care professionals.

We treat as people, not patients, first.”

I’m a certified dementia care consultant and trainer who partners with families/caregivers, to help develop strategies to address dementia-related challenges including bathing/medical appointments/medication refusals and other behavioral challenges.

I also train staff professionals on how to work with people living with dementia labeled as behavioral disturbance.


I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Tiney Ray for about two years. We coordinated regarding our
common geriatric patients’ treatment and talked about many professional development topics. Dr. Ray truly goes above and beyond for her patients and does not rest until the patient has what he/she needs. She takes her time to get to know the patient and the family. She truly approaches each and every patient of hers with utmost respect and empathy. She not only has the knowledge for treatment and guidance but also has the best bedside manner I have ever seen. She is detail oriented and can communicate very clearly regarding treatment approaches. Dr. Tiney is efficient and most importantly a lot of fun! She is always smiling, laughing, and cracking up jokes with those around her which makes the work environment very enjoyable. She is truly one of the best!

Dr, Tiney Ray is a wealth of knowledge on optimizing peoples experience and health while faced with a diagnosis of dementia. As a social worker I observed family members and patients thank Dr Ray for the medical care and understanding she provided. She is the doctor you want for your loved ones.

I have had the pleasure of working alongside Tiney Ray. I was her facilitator, in nursing homes working with patients with behavioral issues and dementia. She provided excellent services for each patient. Her efforts to help each Individual are top notch. She worked diligently and explored every avenue to ensure each patient had the best quality of life possible. In working with her I was amazed at times to see the results of all her hard work. I would highly recommend her services. She will provide the best quality care she possibly can.

Working with Tiney has been wonderful. She is very personable and kind to everyone. When working with the patients, she takes her time getting to know them. When they are having a rough day, she makes them laugh and puts them in a better mood.

Nicole, Telehealth Facilitator, Maine

Working with Tiney was a great experience. She truly cares about the wellbeing of the patient that she provided services to. Tiney always took the time to establish a relationship and thoroughly study each patient’s case to be able to provide quality services that met each individuals needs and goals. Tiney’s level of education and years of experience are clearly evident in the exceptional services that she provides. I have personally seen how her friendly welcoming personality and positive energy has changed patent’s mood, given them hope and improved their overall state of mind. I would highly recommend her services.

Shannon, Telehealth Facilitator, Maine

I have had the privilege of working with Dr. Tiney for the past 6 months amongst the elderly with dementia population. She is nothing less than extraordinary with every patient she comes into contact with. I am beyond happy to share one particular interaction that I was recently able to observe. A patient with advanced dementia had been upset by a staff member, within a nursing home facility. This patient’s emotions were completely out of her control at this point, and Dr. Tiney not only her extensive knowledge, but also her amazing compassion for someone in this fragile mental state to calm the patient down and make her feel safe. She was kind, understanding and so very caring for this woman. I would not hesitate at all to have Dr. Tiney care for a family member of mine, or to recommended her for anyone in need!
