Christiana Egi has a long history of interest in mental health, which started from a young age. This passion led her to not only become a registered nurse and mental health specialist, but also a Diabetes Educator, registered natural health nutritionist and a geriatric specialist. Egi is the owner and operator of Alexis Lodge, a retirement facility that specializes in care for those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Egi has seen firsthand how a dementia diagnosis can put stress on a family, but she noticed that the amount of support for people, especially children, was low. She hopes that A Rose for Grandma can help remove the stigma around dementia and mental illness, while also telling a story about how families can support their loved ones with dementia.
