Event description

Description

Please join Sean Connolly for a Positive Approach to Care™ seminar, 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. Participants leave sessions with a better understanding about the devastating experience of losing cognitive ability and/or functionality as well as insights into interpreting needs.

This 2-hour skills-based workshop is based on Teepa Snow's Positive Approach to Care philosophy. This dementia care workshop is for anyone wishes to improve their ability to approach, connect and provide care with those living with dementia.

Recommended for family members who provide direct care, professional care providers and volunteers who work with people living with dementia.

Workshop Overview:

  • Discussion of how to recognize and address sensory needs and tolerance, including Visual-Verbal-Touch, and the 3 zones of human awareness
  • Practice of PAC "care partnering" techniques including Positive Physical Approach™ (PPA) and Hand Under Hand™ (HUH) and modifications by level of dementia.
  • Review of common issues that occur throughout the progression of dementia, identifying needs at different stages of dementia.

Participants will receive handouts of the material covered. Refreshments will be provided.
