Why Do They Do THAT? - Understanding Symptoms and Behaviors in Dementia
Friday, November 11, 2011 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EST)
The combination of Teepa’s been-there-done-that skills and her formal training as an Occupational Therapist give Teepa the credibility and experience to help caregivers with tried-and-true solutions. Teepa’s philosophy is based on years of medical research and making mistakes first-hand so perfecting a positive approach to caregiving. Her teaching style integrates facts about the brain and how it works, or doesn’t work in the case of dementia, while going in and out of character as a typical person with Alzheimer’s who has anxiety and behavioral problems. Teepa is an advocate for those living with dementia and has made it her personal mission to help family and professional caregivers better understand how it feels to have dementia so they too can be better caregivers. Since her lectures are usually done in the first-person - as if she is the person with dementia - her training gives the audience a first-hand understanding and experience with the disease and a hands-on opportunity to try out new skills in a safe and fun environment.
