Join Senior Helpers, the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, and Teepa Snow for a special seminar worth up to three (3) continuing education credit hours on understanding dementia care, Successful Interaction Strategies for Health Care Providers, presented by Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA. Teepa is an occupational therapist with over 30 years of experience working as a dementia care and dementia education specialist.

This session is designed to provide health care professionals with knowledge, skills, and strategies for providing help to people with dementia. The methods presented recognize losses and use retained abilities to promote optimal care and positive outcomes in interactions. Emphasis will be placed on helping learners to approach people with dementia safely and consistently, provide verbal support and responses that reduce distress, and improve social engagement. It will also focus on developing behaviors and habits that promote well-being and reduce the risk of negative interactions with people who have a dementing illness. The session will be very interactive with the goal of providing knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will change how the person with dementia is viewed and how care is offered.
