I am so proud to announce that our 2015 Caregiver of the Year is CARMY BURKETT! Our staff honored her today at lunch and before we ate she said a prayer that brought tears to our eyes. Never have I ever met anyone as kind, genuine and thankful as this beautiful lady. She is an inspiration and we all are better people just for knowing her. Senior Helpers of Northwest Ohio thanks you for becoming a caregiver mentor and for giving our seniors the best care anyone could ask for.
Senior Helpers has taken a bold step by telling the world that age does not erase hopes and dreams. And by implementing the Virtual Dementia Tour companywide, Senior Helpers has further demonstrated its commitment to those it serves. Senior Helpers is proud to support Second Wind Dreams® on this mission by encouraging donations, raising awareness, and sensitizing the world to dementia as a corporate partner.
What is the Virtual Dementia Tour?
Learning to create a positive environment for those with dementia can only come from attempting to walk in their shoes. Created by P.K. Beville, a specialist in geriatrics, this valuable, easy to follow experiential tour is designed to instill hope in professional and family caregivers, providing them with a tool to move from sympathy to empathy and better understand the behaviors and needs of their loved ones and patients.
