"I gave a hand massage to calm on of our residents who has Alzheimer’s disease who roams. I caught her as she was winding up to 'sundown'. She sat down and let me 'practice for a class I took'. In ten minutes, she was asleep with her head on my shoulder. No medication was needed that night to calm her down. It was so cool!"
