About this Event

This workshop will teach us how to recognize a person’s progression into the final stages of dementia and provide the best care using Teepa Snow’s hands-on, disease-level appropriate techniques. In this two-hour training program, Teepa explains how to connect with someone living with late stage dementia, how to recognize and manage pain, and how to help the care team grieve the loss and celebrate the person’s life. Learn about indicators that the disease has progressed into its final stages, and how to provide the most effective comfort care.

Teepa will cover how to communicate by using visual, auditory, and physical signals of connection when a person’s brain can no longer process words; about physical changes and the importance of primitive reflexes; about advance directives, living wills, do not resuscitate orders, palliative care, and hospice care; and how to give permission to the person nearing end of life to let go without giving up on them.

Teepa Snow is an Occupational Therapist with more than forty years of rich and varied clinical and academic experience. Her experiences led her to the development of the GEMS® State Model, for understanding the progression of dementia, and the Positive Approach® training strategies. Her company, Positive Approach to Care® (PAC) provides online and in-person education and products. Teepa presents with extraordinary expertise and humor to audiences throughout the world.

This event is co-sponsored by The Trousdale Assisted Living & Memory Care.
