Memory Care Life Enrichment Coordinator From Indiana, United States
My family operated a long-term care facility in Posey County. As a child, I grew up interacting with older adults and knew how important activities were for those wherever they were aging! At age 13, I provided companion and homemaker services to my first client, Tilly, a neighbor who needed some assistance with doing household tasks and gathering her chicken eggs. Most of the visit consisted of drinking pepsi and eating some true German dishes. I would help her out in the yard tending to her chickens. I was an ‘old soul’ and wanted to make a difference in the lives of older adults.
After spending time in the Army, I received a Bachelor of Science in Health Services with a concentration in Gerontology from the University of Southern Indiana.
I am known for going the extra mile to provide quality services to my clients. I have a knack at relating to people and finding solutions to their problems. I believe that my clients are more than a list of signs and symptoms. They are people! I provide quality services to help navigate this chapter of their life. My passion is spending time with My Best Friend's...those who have Alzheimer's or other Dementia's.
