Normal vs. Not Normal Aging: Understanding the Difference
Sat, April 8, 2017, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM HST
Please join Dorothy Colby for a Positive Approach to Care™ workshop, developed by Teepa Snow (www.teepasnow.com), that will provide essential information on how to have a positive and meaningful relationship with loved ones with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia throughout their journey. This seminar will help care providers, family members, and anyone who is trying to cope with the changes that happen with dementia.
This 2-hour workshop will help learners recognize and understand “normal” and “not normal” aging. Participants will develop better observation skills to recognize and intervene effectively when behavioral challenges occur. Learn to develop new skills related to approach, cueing, and ability to connect with people affected by dementia. The workshop will also address typical issues that occur from early stages of the condition through mid-disease, and into the final care concerns that are part of the progression.
Participants will receive handouts of the material covered. Refreshments will be provided. Other Positive Approach to Care™ resources will be available for purchase.
