Wait....I'm a Leader?

26 August 2020

I became a Memory Care Unit Director shortly after finishing grad school when I was in my mid 20’s. I was probably selected because I was relatively kind and had some experience with people living with dementia. I didn’t feel like a leader and wasn’t sure what I could share with staff who, in most cases, had many more years of experience.  I loved being with people who had dementia and finding ways to connect.

Everything presented was very informative. I will be taking so much back to my community.
