    Positive Approach to Dementia Care with Jenna Mele

    Positive Approach to Dementia Care with Jenna Mele

    Statistics say that over 50 million people worldwide have dementia (WHO, 2019). And the impacts of dementia include: physical, psychological, social, and economical, not only for the people who have it, but also the people who care for them, as well as their families, and society as a whole. My guest today, Jenna Mele, is an occupational therapist who specializes in dementia care and discovered this practice area while she was a care partner for her own grandmother who had dementia. Fueled by her personal experience, Jenna advocates for a more positive approach to care and is passionate about improving the lives of her clients, their families, and other healthcare practitioners who work with people with dementia.

I can’t get enough!

Just finished episode 39 and I felt like it was speaking to me! As a new grad, I struggle with confidence and comparing my skills to coworkers with years of experience and their own trial and error. I love the reminder of knowing where I am at in my own journey and what I can provide to my client. I have really enjoyed all episodes and hearing what other OTs are passionate about and learning about the wide variety of practice areas. Thank you for creating this platform!

Episode 59 is $, literally!

Sarah does a fantastic job of having diversity on her podcasts with several different people and discussion topics. Episode 59 is so important for everyone, and I feel like an area OTs often don’t think about or know where to start. But, finances are so important, especially with all of the unknown at this time! This particular episode is great for some starter recommendations and resources to begin to utilize! #ot4lyfe
