How Aging Creative started
Jill Modell-Dion, Creator
As the creator, after thirty years of working in geriatrics I pooled all my ideas, resources, knowledge, and experience with a specialty in memory care. I have worked within many healthcare environments that include, skilled care as a certified ADC therapeutic recreation director, an assisted living Florida State Core trained ED, owner of a private case management service, and in several adult day care centers as director. I have supervised and trained over 200 employees and volunteers and have counseled and supported hundreds of family caregivers throughout my career. I am now happy to share my vision for Aging Creative and my continued commitment to improving the lives of caregivers.
The idea behind Aging Creative is simple, as we age, we should continue to evolve in all areas.
While we still enjoy doing the things we love, we should continue with new interests and challenges. However, for those faced with difficulty in performing routine tasks, the fun should not stop. I don’t believe anyone should stop enjoying life, even when they encounter physical and or cognitive challenges.
I believe each of us can still enjoy the things we always loved by approaching them differently and “at our own pace.”
As my company grows, I look forward to communicating and meeting with our Aging Creative community members. Sharing our words and experiences, we will inspire each other for the ride ahead. - JMD
