Rosemary is quite popular around Oakwood. In fact, her straightforward, quick witted, and informative advice is so loved that she now has her own video series: Real Talk With Rosemary! (check it out, here) If you follow our blog often, you’ll find enlightening articles by Rosemary with advice for both seniors and caregivers.
We asked Rosemary a few questions to get to know her a bit better…
How long have you been at Oakwood?
What do you do here?
Work with families and members as the RN for Oakwood
What is your favorite part about coming to OCC each day?
The interactions with other people!
What is one thing you have learned from an experience with an Oakwood member?
Age does not matter at times, neither does full cognition. A member at Red Mtn. showed me that you can always voice your own opinion and speak your mind.
Name a method you use for successful communication with a person who has dementia…
A smile, handshake, or hug; meeting them in their world of reality, and the knowledge that they are always right!
