Using nationally recognized dementia educator Teepa Snow's Positive Approach to Care™ training, this class helps learners understand and recognize the differences in “normal” and “not normal” aging, and develop new skills related to approach, cueing, and ability to connect with people living with dementia. The workshop emphasizes the value of matching helping behaviors to the person’s needs and retained abilities to promote a sense of control and self direction. We will address typical issues that occur from early stages of the condition, through mid-disease, and into the final care concerns that are a part of the progression.
