What does Teepa Snow describe in her videos with EMS?

Understanding helps!


People living with dementia are doing the best they can. 

Use strategies that assure them, "YOU are not the enemy."

Fear = Fight or Flight

"Self-defense" can look like "aggression" (both ways) if you do not understand how normal people react in an emergency.
