Our Host, Lori La Bey will be talking with our guest Christiana Egi who has been driven to be a care partner through her life roles as a mother, grandmother, Registered Nurse, Diabetic Educator, Registered Natural Health Nutritionist, Geriatric and Mental Health Specialist. She is also the Author of A Rose For Grandma.

She has spent 10 years of her 34-year career in nursing working in the crisis unit of Canada’s largest Psychiatric Hospital. For the last 22 years, she has worked as the owner and operator of Alexis Lodge Retirement Facilities in Toronto, Canada, a business she started with her late husband Anthony, to impact the lives individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia.  The Alexis Lodge is focused on putting the individuals first and giving them a place to call home. This is a place where people are treated with love, respect, and dignity when they can no longer be cared for at home by their loved ones.

Christiana is a woman of faith. She uses her belief as a guide to help others see the little things in life to be thankful for. She has a daily goal of putting a smile on someone’s face helps the world go around more positively. They apply this belief when caring for those with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia.

Christiana has always said love and respect are the cornerstones of caring for an individual and I couldn’t agree with her more. She is determined to help eradicate the stigma around Dementia and Mental Illness during her lifetime.
