Berni Baer
Associate Trainer

Compassionate - Enthusiastic - Loyal

My journey to Dementia Care Matters began from a place of love. My mother lived with vascular dementia for 15 years post diagnosis. Hearing about the Butterfly Household® Model in 2009 lit a fire in my soul. I wanted this model in Canada, where a person’s spirit is nurtured and they truly are Home, and I wanted to be part of it.

My background is as a Registered Nurse. In the past 40 years I have worked as Staff Nurse in General Medicine, various roles in Oncology, and as an educator in Long Term Care. I have always brought my heart along.
