Berni Baer
Associate Trainer

Compassionate - Enthusiastic - Loyal

I began my career as a care attendant in a nursing home when I was 17. I have worked as a registered nurse in general medicine, oncology, long term care and maintain Gerontological Nurse Certification (Canada). I left my role as Education Coordinator in a long term care home in order to focus on feelings-based, person-centred dementia care.

I passionately believe that all persons living with a dementia should be supported in living a life full of love, purpose, and joy, and in staff bringing their hearts to work. Joining the DCM Canada team, and being part of such a positive change in the culture of dementia care, is a dream come true for me.
