With 33 years experience in long-term and geriatric nursing as well as nine years in acute and rehabilitative care I can bring guidance and teaching to others. I have spent the last three years improving my dementia care training studying the teachings of Teepa Snow and using these skills to teach my staff these techniques in a special dementia care unit.
I would love to be a part of a unit of people dedicated to the care and improvement of the lives of people with any stage of dementias.
