Mission: To assist businesses in the Aging Services to create professional and engaging content. To move each unique mission and message forward to promote and address the needs of our older adults.
Hello, My name is Molly Wisniewski (LeGrand), and I have cared for older adults living with dementia for over ten years. I am a firm believer that everyone deserves person-centered care in both the quality of their care and the quality of their life.
I was fortunate to begin my career in the aging services with a mentor dedicated to the teaching of resident’s rights and the promotion of quality of life. These concepts have become my foundation as I grow in the field, especially in the face of adversity which is all too common in this field.
Over the past ten years, I have supplemented formal education in the field of geriatrics through in-services, conferences, and my internship with the National Consumer Voice. In May 2016, I graduated from the Erickson School, UMBC, where I received my M.A. in the Management of Aging Services.
I have a passion for providing education and resources to families, professionals, caregivers, and older adults on an array of topics affecting our elder population. My blog the Upside to Aging shares this mission.
In addition to my personal blog, I have featured pieces at Provider Magazine, Sixty and Me, Storri.com, and Alzauthors.
My professional writing has ranged in topics. In my position at the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, I authored several white papers on Maryland's Early Hearing and Detection Intervention, A Safe Sleep Memorandum distributed to over 32 of the State's Hospitals, as well as, an internal report on the benefits of Telehealth services for low-income populations.
At the National Consumer Voice, I authored numerous Technical Assistance pieces for local and State Ombudsman offices across the country. My graduate capstone project was a white paper on finding affordable housing options for low-income seniors living in the Baltimore area. These projects can be found in the Writing Sample section below.
