“Being the Nurse Manager at The Nathaniel Witherell on the Specialized Dementia Unit, I can honestly say, “I love my job.” Although it’s not an easy responsibility and each day brings different challenges, my main focus is the well being of my patients. Dementia and Alzheimer’s don’t only affect my patients, but, also their families. I make a conscious effort to ease their emotional pain as they watch their loved ones go thought the different stages of this debilitating disease. I use different techniques and years of experience to therapeutically achieve this goal. This isn’t just my job, it’s my passion and I feel that the most important tool that I use is my heart.”
