What do I do?
I continually endeavour to make a difference in the lives of Seniors in Ontario Long-Term Care homes one person at a time. . Advocacy is highly underrated and as a band in the 80’s once said… ‘We’re not going to take it anymore’ ! Hope you are smiling at that… and if you are … you are now showing your age! 🙂
Who am I right now?
I am a resourceful and an enthusiastic creative thinker who is skilled at producing and generating an interest in a wide range of programs for Seniors, specifically those suffering from Dementia of the Alzheimer’s type.
How do I do it? Where do I go from here?
On top of writing, which can be such a solitary world, I am a Public speaker who gives a brief biography outlining the journey of caring for my mother who was diagnosed with early onset AD at the age of 63. I explore and reveal the importance of recreation in the lives of the elderly, specifically seniors in long-term care. I am available to speak to family members and staff who work with seniors, especially seniors who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease.
When I’m not speaking publicly and looking for that right fit for employment; what takes up my time?
Currently I am working on non-fiction stories that include my recreation work in long-term care and explores the journey of 3 generations dealing with Alzheimer’s disease along with a very special ‘dog’ Matinee!
I hope you enjoy the stories – they are true and written from my perspective.
