Understanding Dementia Care
with Teepa Snow

National Tour Information








Nationally renowned dementia expert Teepa Snow will be presenting two special Alzheimer’s and dementia seminars, one for families caring for loved ones with dementia and one for health care professionals, in cities around the country in 2012 and 2013.

Essentials for Your Journey Together
This seminar 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 will be 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. 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.


Successful Interaction Strategies for Health Care Providers
This session is designed to provide health care professionals with knowledge, skills, and strategies for providing help to people with dementia. 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 that will change how the person with dementia is viewed and how care is offered.
