Love is part of the job
Creating a culture where all members of the team are focused on the emotional wellbeing of those living with dementia provides a rich and diverse experience for both residents and staff.
Housekeepers who hold hands and go for walks. Social Workers who support enjoying a snack. A house dog who licks hands and loves to be petted.
Caring for people with dementia means you work in all departments. You go with the moment and provide what is needed at that time. You may take on the role of a mother, an old classmate, or a child. Creating that moment is a beautiful thing!
