learning the different stages of Alzheimers and Dementia

Recommended Posts

Assessments are very helpful in understanding the levels of cognitive ability so you can help the resident receive the best of care and attention needed for them.  I really enjoy working with the residents to help them in any way that i can.  I have found that even with the lower levels i have been able to succeed with my programs in what i call strengthening the mind and mind stretching.  I have experienced residents who for weeks would not say a word or show an expression on their face after participating in my programs i now see smiles laughter and they willing answer me if i ask them a question. It is the best feeling i the world to know you can still grasp them in ways never imaginable. i get responses from their family members of how much they appreciate all the things i am doing with their loved ones to help them.  My job is very rewarding and i never thought i would ever love a job like i do now.
