A little about me: I began as a volunteer at the Riverside Center for Excellence in Aging in 2011 in the Geriatric Assessment Clinic and in 2013 became the clinic coordinator. I am a Certified Senior Advisor and trained facilitator in Caring for You, Caring for Me, Chronic Disease Self-Management, is a certified trainer for Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Caregiving and provides back-up as a counselor for the FAMILIES program, the NYU based Care Giver Intervention program. I co-facilitate a support group for those living with early stage dementia and their care partners. In February 2016, I and other volunteers in Williamsburg began the Memory Café to provide a socialization opportunity for people living with dementia and their caregivers. M interest in and dedication to geriatric health came from personal experience with family and friends.
