Ms. Emond joined Hebrew HealthCare in 1993 as a Recreation Therapist for the then Adult Day Center located at the Immanuel House in Hartford. Since that time, her main focus has been on working with and caring for individuals with Dementia; she received her Dementia Care Practitioner certification in 2013. With the consolidation of the two Adult Day Center locations in 2011, Ms. Emond adopted more responsibilities within the center and became Senior Day Center Program Manager in 2014.
During her tenure with Hebrew HealthCare, Ms. Emond developed award winning programs that have been featured in Creative Forecasting and The Information Source publications. Her interest in integrative medicine led her to become a Reiki Master/Teacher in 2003. This skill has allowed her to instruct clients and staff alike on the benefits of relaxation. Classes are held on a regular basis.
