During my 23 years at the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center, I have had the honor of working with residential care staff throughout the Chicago area. I am always impressed at the depth of compassion and respect they convey for the people with dementia. They bring joy, structure and love to difficult situations.

With COVID-19, it’s a tough time for residential settings. You all are strong and will help your residents through with that same compassion and respect. We are sending #WordsOfComfort during this time.

And I look forward to being back with you soon!
