World-renowned dementia advocate and educator, Teepa Snow, will share effective strategies for helping people living in the early stages of dementia during personal care inorder to reduce resistance to care. It will enable learners to develop better observational skills to recognize and intervene effectively when behavioral challenges occur. This session will emphasize the value of matching helping behaviors to the person’s needs and retained abilities to promote a sense of control and self-direction.
Teepa’s philosophy is reflective of her education, work experience, medical research, and first-hand caregiving experiences. Her advocacy efforts led her to the development of the GEMS® dementia classification model and the Positive Approach® to Care training strategies.
