I was very pleased with the first Echo session held yesterday, great job everyone!
I am Crystal Gingras, a Psychogeriatric Resource Consultant working for NOSH from both of their location, Terrace Bay and Marathon. My main focus in both communities is Long Term Care, and Chronic Care. I do also accept referrals for Acute as well as community. In both communities I am the only professional working with older adults and behaviours.
I am still fairly new in my position, just over a year. Before this I have worked as a residential councilor for women and children fleeing abuse and as a child protection worker. I am looking forward to the chance to learn from others in the field.
