These free presentations are designed for family, friends and hands-on care staff to improve skills to help Care Givers become Care Partners.
These topics will help all to learn about the “positive approach to care” method, created by leading dementia educator Teepa Snow. Her method recognizes individuals changing abilities as they progress through the disease and it emphasizes the value of connection.
