How did you get involved in dementia care?

As a social psychologist I have always been interested in Ageing. I find it a challenging stage in life and I admire people who can deal with it in a creative and encouraging way. I realized, through personal experience in my family, that Dementia is another level of complexity within Ageing and I felt drawn to working and developing in this area of Ageing.

What do you love most about working for Atlas?

I like Atlas because it has a very good working atmosphere. Atlas offers a person centred and small group experience for its members and as a facilitator I work in a flexible and very supportive work place.

Tell me a memory that makes you smile when you’ve been working at Atlas

When I see members engaging and enjoying their day. When one of them who seems disconnected engages in a conversation or simply smiles at me or anyone in the room. This is why I love the song: When you are smiling!

What does a typical day look like for you at Atlas?

It’s being aware of member’s needs and accompanying them to have a good day, while engaging in different types of stimulation. Usually morning outings with lots of conversation going on, and after very enjoyable meals, afternoons which offer focused therapy in a fun environment.

What is your motto or personal mantra?

Present moment, wonderful moment!

How would your family and friends describe you in 3 words?
