I am an occupational therapist. I have several years of previous experience working as an occupational therapist in the field of old age psychiatry, and as a lecurer with a particular focus on meaningful activites for persons with dementia. Working at the occupational therapy program at VID Sandnes my main subjects for teaching are psychiatric health, dementia and elderly care.
