I am currently working part time in the Life Enrichment Department of a Memory Care Community that uses Tee pa Snow's Positive Approach to Care and I am Level 1 & 2 certified. I am passionate about helping seniors find purposeful and engaging ways to spend their time, so that they are truly enjoying their lives. I believe that they deserve this- they have earned it. I build personal relationships based on respect, laughter, songs and a shared love of old movies, TV shows and music. I love to listen to seniors (or sometimes their families, if they are not able) tell their stories. I find that people have such interesting fun stories if you just take the time to listen. I am comfortable working with seniors of all levels of mobility, dietary restrictions and cognition. My youngest daughter just graduated from high school and I am looking for ways to supplement my income and fill some of my extra time. I would love to get to know your loved one!
