Jake is our MOSAIC and Engagement Specialist at Azura of Brookfield, and runs our T.I.M.E. program in the home.
Jake shares, “With years of experience in caring for individuals with dementia, I am dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of those affected by Dementia. Currently serving as a MOSAIC & Engagement Specialist at Azura of Brookfield, I bring a wealth of hand-on knowledge and a compassionate approach to my work.
My journey with Azura began three years ago. I’ve worked at 3 of 14 locations, each in a different capacity. These experiences have provided me with invaluable insights into the unique challenges and needs of individuals with Dementia.
To further enhance my ability to provide comprehensive care, I hold certifications as a Certified Dementia Practitioner, CBRF Administrator, and Certified Nursing Assistant. These credentials, along with my extensive hands-on experience, enable me to offer exceptional support and knowledge of care to our team members and the community.
Recognized as Azura’s True Blue Award Winner of 2021, I pride myself on my commitment to ongoing learning and professional growth. I consistently seek opportunities to expand my knowledge and expertise in the field of Dementia care, ensuring that I stay up to date with the latest advancements and best practices.
In the Brookfield region, I play a pivotal role in facilitating Azura’s T.I.M.E. Program, an early memory loss initiative that brings joy, enrichment, and personalized care to individuals in the community. Additionally, I lead our MOSAIC trainings which are designed to empower caregivers with the knowledge and tools they need to create a compassionate and engaging environment for people with Dementia.
Committed to making a difference beyond the walls of our community, I actively contribute to the Brookfield area by facilitating a caregiver support group and memory cafe. Through these gatherings, I provide a nurturing space for individuals caring for their loved ones with memory loss to connect, share experiences, and find solace in a supportive community.
Driven by my belief in the power of education, I thoroughly enjoy providing valuable insights, practical tips, and effective strategies to those caring for a loved one with memory loss. As an advocate for compassion and understanding in dementia care, I am passionate about helping others see situations from a different perspective, fostering a more empathetic and inclusive approach.”
