Why I Care

"I see family members of the residents I care for stop visiting them or have short, stressful visits with their loved ones who suffer from dementia. Sometimes I find them crying outside their family member's door. I want to help educate family members to accept and embrace their loved ones dementia, and enjoy reminiscing and other simple pleasures with them."
