Glen Burnie: GBHS trainees attend memory care top

Glen Burnie High School Bio-Medical Allied Health (BMAH) magnet program trainees had the opportunity to see into the future of older care at the 6th Yearly Memory Care Summit Jan. 24-26.

Trainees Carley Yeager, Daisy Mooneyham and Irelynn Dunn were welcomed by UMBC’s Erickson School to travel to Disney World as a part of the BMAH program’s focus on aging and wellness.

“As the leader of the STEM Bio-Med program, we are constantly searching for genuine opportunities to see our pathways in the field and not just in the class,” BMAH Department Chairwoman Krystal Gulden said.The conference focused mainly on development. Gulden stated the BMAH and Erickson schools are unique due to their focused programs in aging. She said the natural progression for a BMAH student interested in memory care would be to enter UMBC’s program. Daisy stated she is interested most in how people grow and in mental disorders. “I was more interested in the person and the care that enters into dementia and Alzheimer’s,”Carley said.” And how we can improve and make it easier, since it’s truly hard if they are not treated with the care and regard they require.”Irelynn said maturing with and taking care of her grandmother with Alzheimer’s triggered her to have

a natural, continuing interest in aging and wellness. Members of her family previously had actually gone to a nationwide Alzheimer’s convention. Irelynn works as a volunteer in the emergency clinic at St. Agnes Hospital.The students had the chance to meet the Erickson School’s Dr. Judah Ronch, who

shared his knowledge.” Our hope is that we can see exactly what reality is like in this field ,”teacher Renee Beasley said.”We are thrilled for them

to satisfy specialists, and take exactly what they are discovering and see how they can use it .”Cierra O’Keefe of the Erickson School stated they wish to open the minds of high school trainees to possible careers.Carley said she wasn’t mindful UMBC has a memory care research study,so the possibilities for care and significance of comprehending the diseases have been mind-blowing to her.”It’s hard to convince 14-to 18-year-olds that dealing with the senior is rewarding, and difficult to convince moms and dads that they can make cash in this field,”O’Keefe said. She stated any step where trainees can be immersed is mutually beneficial.Craft and supplier fair The Tanyard Springs House Owners’Association will host a craft and supplier reasonable 10 a.m– 1 p.m. Saturday in the community clubhouse, 6920 Heritage Crossing.The event will feature handmade products by 20 Tanyard Springs locals along with numerous direct sales representatives.
