Invitation to Engage – Why Life Enrichment in Memory Care Matters (Webinar – Free Community Event)
January 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Speaker: AWARE member Lilly Adrian, CALM, ADC, CDP, Memory Care Consultant and Trainer, owner of The Bridge of Time, LLC
Lilly will show us how to communicate and engage with memory-impaired loved ones in meaningful ways. Lilly’s motto is “Remember their PAST, Celebrate their PRESENT, and Embrace their FUTURE”.
Lilly cared for both parents on their Alzheimer’s journey. This experience redirected her life’s work into the field of caring for older adults, many of whom have memory impairment. Making each day shine in creative ways by honing skills in communication, music and the arts, Lilly has designed daily programs that have enriched the lives of each person she touches.
Educated as a Social Worker, Lilly started out working with children. As her father’s Alzheimer’s disease progressed, she shifted to working with older adults in Abilene and Midland with Meals on Wheels and the Area Agency on Aging. In 2009, Lilly shifted course to Memory Care by receiving certifications as an Activity Professional (ADC), and later Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP) and Certified Assisted Living Manager (CALM). Many years in the Dallas memory care community have added layer upon layer of best practices, adapting ideas to make resident days more meaningful, events intended to delight and educate caregivers and families, and now trains others how to “Remember the PAST, Celebrate the PRESENT, and Embrace their FUTURE”.
