Lana studied Recreational Therapy and graduated with honours from Niagara College Canada. Prior to her graduation, Lana served as a dietary aide at a long-term care facility. It was this experience that inspired Lana to embark on the mission to do more to help improve the lives of seniors.

With experience specifically in helping those with Dementia and Alzheimer’s, Lana understands the patience, care, and compassion that is required to truly assist those living with dementia to overcome the barriers that prevent them from maintaining independence and maintain a strong sense of self.
