About this Event

JANUARY

Positive Approach to Care Workshops presents . . .

Topic: Normal v Not Normal Aging

Certified Trainers: Pat Bemis, RN & Mapuana Taamu, CNA, RBT

Please join Positive Approach to Care Trainers Pat Bemis and Mapuana Taamu for a 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.

Recommended for family members who care for a loved one, professional care providers, young health professionals and college students of any major.

Participants will receive handouts of the material covered.

Cookies, water and tea will be provided. Feel free to bring your own lunch!

Workshop Learning Objectives:

- Compare and contrast “normal” versus “not normal” aging.

- Discuss how dementia affects the chemical and physical structure of the human brain over time.

- Explore the sensory changes that come with brain change.
