The positive impact of her techniques has earned Amira the trust and respect of her peers, the medical community, and more importantly, the many who have regained a sense of self respect and dignity, the afflicted victims.

"When I began working with residents in various stages of Alzheimer's, it didn't take long for me to realize that for my activities to be successful I had to address the fear, anger, frustration, low self-esteem, and other negative feelings that were barriers to success. I felt confident that if I got to know them and find their likes and dislikes I could help return some of their memory function and teach them new activities.

"I soon recognized that Alzheimer's residents had their own set of issues and needs and I would have to customize my repertoire of activities to accommodate those issues and needs. Not only did I recognize a need for specialized activities for residents with Alzheimer's, I realized that because of the progressive nature of Alzheimer's disease, activities had to be easily adjusted to each individual's needs and abilities as they changed.
