A Typical Day in Memory Care
Question: What is a typical day like?
“People often say “Tierre, what’s the day to day life?” As an individual who works in a community that serves seniors, I can tell you this, no two days are going to be alike. That’s a great thing. Will you work really hard? Of course you will.
Simple things such as reminding a resident how to brush his teeth. I’d like to believe you get the opportunity to teach someone new every single day. By reminding them of a task that they’ve known all their life. You get the opportunity to reintroduce it to them with love.”
- Every day is different
- Days are rarely boring
- We must remind residents to perform things they already know
