"A Day with Teepa Snow" in Panama City
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us to hear from renowned dementia care specialist, Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA, one of the world’s leading advocates and educators for anyone living with dementia. This program is designed to help those caring for someone who is experiencing problems with thinking, memory, language, or behavior. It will address a wide variety of common concerns and issues from the earliest stages of cognitive changes until the end of journey resulting in death due to complications of brain failure.
Whether you are a professional in the Health Care Industry or a friend or family member of someone living with dementia, this is a must-see seminar packed with useful information you can begin utilizing immediately. Teepa’s GEMS® States classification system (based on the Allen Cognitive Disability Theory) helps you to understand which state of brain change the person is experiencing, and how to respond appropriately. Senior Helpers adapted Teepa’s GEMS®States into the Senior GEMS®, which they use to train their caregivers. People who are trained to use a Positive Approach to Care® can help change resistance and refusals into participation and successful interactions.
