About Marie

I believe we are all the same and we all want the same thing to be loved. And as a woman of faith, I believe love and kindness win the day. So for me, it is about how do I love and show kindness to my clients. Changes in clients mood, especially Dementia and Alzheimer patients, don't rattle me and I can come up with creative ways to bring calmness to a situation. Also, the clients' family plays a big part in how best to care for their loved ones, of course. Collaboration is key to strategies and best practices when needed for their loved ones.

Petrella Family - private client
Mr. Petrella suffered from Dementia and Delirium and, as of Nov 2018, could no longer walk. I was responsible for medication dispensing, meal preparation, companionship, and light housekeeping. Every other morning I would shower Mr. Petrella. Every day I would prepare breakfast and perform a range of ADLs with him. When he could no longer walk, I was able to transfer him to his favorite chair in the morning. Mr. Petrella was a challenging patient as he was combative due to Dementia. I used music and touching Mr. Petrella's hand to calm him down. I learned a range of techniques to deescalate his combativeness.
