In 1992 Ms. Owens was an honor graduate of Gadsden State Community College’s Nursing program. Now author of Now What?, a workbook for managing the records of the person with dementia.
Ms. Owens began her nursing career on the med surge floor at a local hospital then moved to a psychiatric hospital where she earned a National Certification in Psychiatric and Mental Health nursing. In 1998 she moved into the eldercare field and experienced first-hand the effects of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. During her time with home health and long-term care facilities, her interests in the various types of dementia and methods of intervention have grown. She began seeking ways of improving her knowledge and skills in managing those with this disease and wanted to help others who wanted to improve their understanding and skillset in managing the disease. In 2015, she went on to become a Certified Dementia Practitioner and a Certified Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Care Trainer through the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners. As a certified trainer, she is seeking to reach area professionals and caretakers who are interested in learning to care for the more than 5 million Americans diagnosed with some type of dementia.
