Sweet Caregiver And Smile Creator
I have my Bachelors Degree in Psychology with a minor in Women Studies. I have 7+ years experience of Senior Dementia Care. I consistently made sure the participants in my day program were safe, secure and happy in the environment they were in. I would provide them with breakfast and lunch in accordance with any diet restrictions. I created brain games, trivia, and physical games for them to participate in as well as arts & crafts, reminisce, an exercise program, and cinematic adventures. I believe music therapy plays an important role in helping Dementia care participants emotionally connect to their past, even a forgotten one. Singing is a big part of my life and I shared that part of me with my participants on a daily basis. I am able to do light housework, meal prep, feeding, laundry, and provide companionship for your loved one.
