Andrea M. Hill is a Research Associate on the “Meaningful Engagement and Quality of Life among Assisted Living Residents with Dementia” study (R01AG062310) under the direction of Candace L. Kemp, Ph.D. Her gerontological areas of interest include: understanding, creating, and evaluating non-pharmacological evidence-based interventions and health initiatives to enhance individuals’ ability to live well with dementia; the subjective reality orientation of those living with dementia, while finding ways to combat depression, loneliness, apathy, disengagement, and excess disability. As an extension of this, dementia workforce issues such as understanding how social and structural factors impact retention, recruitment, job quality, job motivation, and job satisfaction have become important areas of focus. Ms. Hill is a Certified Eden Associate and a dedicated member of the Georgia Gerontology Society, Southern Gerontological Society, and The Gerontological Society America. She is a founder and current staff representative of Sigma Phi Omega’s Second Wind Dreams Coalition, an auxiliary of the non-profit organization Second Wind Dreams® (SWD) located in Roswell, GA.
