Using world renowned Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Care™ training model we will explore the differences between normal aging and not normal aging while gaining a better understanding of what to expect as we get older and how it is different from those living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. We will also develop new skills related to approach, cueing, and ability to connect with people affected by dementia. WE 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 Snow’s Positive ApproachTM to Care (PAC) is a training and advocacy organization offering techniques used by professionals and families working or living with dementia or other brain changes.
