Dementia Home Care Graduation 2006
Text Size A  A  A

August 31st was graduation day for 12 home care workers from All Metro Health Care who participated in our 43-hour Dementia Home Care Training Program. To mark this special event, speeches were given by three of the graduates – Desiree Morales, Ernest Sandcroft and Dorothy Greene – and graduate Delores Douse treated those gathered to a poignant reading of a poem entitled “The Cure,” which she wrote for the occasion. Certificates of Achievement were awarded to all as proud family members, friends, caregivers, and agency staff looked on. The ceremony was followed by a lovely reception with lots of good food and good cheer to mark this special day. The training was made possible by a grant from the William Randolph Hearst Foundation.

I would like to take this opportunity to say that I am passing “the baton” to my capable colleague, Nancy Hendley, who will now be conducting the Chapter’s home care trainings. For the past eight years, I have greatly enjoyed my role as trainer and will certainly miss working with the many dedicated and compassionate women and men who have participated in our training program. I wish Nancy much success and will go on to devote more of my time to developing a comprehensive early-stage program that will best fit the needs of the Chapter’s growing number of clients with early-stage dementia.

— Paulette Michaud,
Manager, Early Stage Services
