Why I Care:

"When I first started working as a therapist, before returning to grad school, I saw many patients in nursing homes with dementia and Alzheimer's disease who received no treatment and were overmedicated to control outbursts. I knew we needed to do more and to do better. Now, at Our Generations, LLC, we are able to work with both individual clients and large corporations to create calm, creative, and productive environments for individuals with dementia and Alzheimer's disease."
