Founder, Out and About Colorado.
My work experience has allowed me to serve people during all stages of Alzheimer’s, providing Recreational Therapy in nursing homes, designing and conducting daytrips in an Adult Day Program and as a professional one-on-one caregiver through a home healthcare agency. I completed the “Savvy Caregiver Program” offered by the Alzheimer’s Association, and I am qualified as one of their “Leaders in Dementia Care”. I have a Certificate in Gerontology from UCLA, an undergraduate degree in Sociology, and am currently working on my Masters in Gerontology. My training and experience has helped me learn how best to serve those with dementia on many levels.
My passion is for helping those with Younger Onset/Early-Mid Stage Alzheimer’s.
What a unique group this is, and what a pleasure it is to be able to assist them. I have discovered a group of people who are engaged, funny, interesting, creative, productive, energetic, loving, and eager to stay active; yet they have suddenly found they have certain limitations.
I created a program I call Out and About Colorado which aims to specifically serve this community.
It is important for me to get to know each client, to discover his or her personal goals, and together design a program that best suits them and their loved ones.
I am fortunate to be one of those people who enjoys going to work every day. We have a lot of laughs, we visit interesting places, and we have fun! We enjoy being outdoors, learning new things and sharing experiences. We’re in this journey together, this program is a partnership, and I encourage you to get in touch as soon as possible.
