Our very own Cindy Koperski, Activities Director, is making a notable impact on the lives of our residents, while inspiring other staff to do the same! She is one of the many Bethesda Senior Living care givers training in Teepa Snow's POSITIVE APPROACH™ - a progressive therapy for helping seniors and their families recognize and manage the early signs of memory change.
As Activities Director at Hickory Villa, Cindy Koperski is intent on meeting each resident’s needs by involving them in engaging, meaningful, and productive programs. Using Teepa Snow’s POSITIVE APPROACH™, Cindy has identified strengths in individuals which have allowed her to support those residents, as well as others suffering from dementia related challenges. No matter where a resident finds themselves in their journey of life, we personalize ways to connect through music, communication, and touch.
“I find fulfillment in enriching the lives of our residents one senior at a time through a variety of activities and outings. Whether it’s getting one on one time chatting with them about past interests, sharing a laugh between each other, or providing them with a weekly manicure, the connection on a personal level is what I find most rewarding.
Kindness is more than deeds. It is an attitude, an expression, a look, or a touch. It is anything that lifts another person.”
Cindy has been a dedicated team member with over fifteen years of service to Hickory Villa. She values and cherishes the time she spends with the residents every day.
