I previously worked at two nursing homes in New York, before moving here to Los Angeles. I was a recreational therapist. I conducted cognitive and sensory programs for seniors as well as small groups for Alzheimer/Dementia/low function residents, providing sensory stimulation (via music therapy, art therapy, games, etc.). I also tended privately to individuals in their home, providing companionship, light housework, assistance with bathing and feeding. Since living in Los Angeles, I have worked with several senior clients as a personal caregiver/companion for eight years.
