  1. Lori, great topic! Engagement goes hand in hand with people living with dementia. I believe we as a society needs to remember socializing is a human need and offering a means to share an interest, thought, idea and especially a job makes us all feel a purpose in life. This is one of my only reason why I love working as a Certified Dementia Practitioner offering recreational activities with my seniors in their homes and bringing to them any possible means to feel a “quality of life” . Whether it happens to be creating a “job” as an “accountant” or having the person feel he or she works at a local library; I will create this sense of community and socialization for the person in my care. Thank you for all the great work you do and share to empower those in this truly endearing career we have chosen.
