Recap: The Vital Role of Advocacy in Supporting People Living with Dementia
In this week’s episode, Susan talked with good friend, fellow nurse Anne Ellett. Anne is a certified nurse practitioner and founder of Memory Care Support, where she provides private consultation to individual families seeking the best in care for their loved ones living with dementia.
In this recap Marla and Mary take a closer look at Anne’s work through the lens of the four core principles of Best Life, the Green House approach to people living with dementia, authored by Anne. Both of us have taught with Anne, so we enjoyed the opportunity to share our perspective on her dedication to elders.
The Power of Normal is one of the principles of Best Life, and Marla takes a deeper dive into normalization. She cites Wolf Wolfensberger and his work in the field. You will enjoy her insight on the topic.
