Melissa prides herself on being genuine, trustworthy
During her time in Assisted Living and Memory Care, she saw most of her families who had a loved one living there with some type of dementia, completely lost, not knowing what to do, where to turn or how to act around their loved ones.
Additionally through no fault of their own, the staff did not always know the best way to assist their residents or how to react or communicate when they acted in a certain way.
Dementia care is different than any other care and she quickly realized that education and support was desperately needed but she had to learn more to help, so it became her passion to learn as much as she could and her mission to share her knowledge.
