Join Senior Helpers and Teepa Snow for a seminar that will provide essential information on how to have a positive and meaningful relationship with loved ones with Alzheimer’s and dementia throughout their journey. This session is helpful for care providers, family members, and anyone who is trying to cope with the changes that happen with dementia by providing basic information and communication skills to improve interactions and ultimately create more meaningful moments together. 

This seminar will be presented by Teepa Snow, a dementia care and dementia education specialist with over 30 years of experience in geriatrics. Teepa works closely with facilities and dementia specialty service providers throughout the country to improve and optimize programs and services to people with dementia and their families. 

During this family-centered seminar, attendees will gain a better understanding of dementia and its common symptoms, behaviors, and stages. Families and caregivers will learn strategies to reduce conflict, improve interactions, and work together with loved ones. Teepa will introduce the Senior Gems® approach, which provides the right environmental support, care assistance, and daily activities for each stage of the disease. The focus will be on helping attendees recognize and appreciate preserved skills and the value of using what remains.
