Marissa Stalman, BSN
As a former Care Aide and Registered Nurse, Marissa has gained invaluable lived experience working alongside persons living with dementia (PLWD). Soon to complete her Master’s Degree from Simon Fraser University’s Department of Gerontology, Marissa has devoted hundreds of hours to studying and researching this progressive illness. She is a published author and, more recently, was invited to join an “Expert Task Group” with the BC Centre for Palliative Care—assisting with an innovative project intended to benefit PLWD.
Marissa is passionate about improving care for persons living with dementia and dedicated to enhancing supports for their families, friends, and care partners.
