Elder Care

Monika Scott and I have been discussing elder care including memory care, Alzheimer’s and the need for a better social safety net in the U.S.  Hello I am Monika, and I am currently working as an intern at Mercy Retirement Center in Oakland California.   Mercy is an assisted living and care center.  Mercy has a memory care unit  and I have learned about several techniques working with dementia residents.
