I am a nurse who avidly believes in the Dementia Care Matters Butterfly Household® Model of Care, founded by Dr. David Sheard in the UK. Advocating for feelings-based, person-centred care for those living with a dementia sets my soul on fire.
My passion for dementia care comes from a place of love, as my mother lived with the condition for the last 15 years of her life.
My dream is for all of Canada, and the world, to embrace the new culture of care for persons living with a dementia. In the words of Dr. Sheard, “Feelings matter most in dementia care”.
