Seniors Helping Seniors was thrilled to be an emerald sponsor at Teepa Snow’s First Annual Positive Approach® to Care conference in Raleigh-Durham, NC. Teepa Snow is one of the world’s leading educators on dementia care and in 2005 she founded the company Positive Approach® to Care (PAC) which provides dementia care training around the world. This two-day conference was kicked off with an inaugural presentation of the play “A Gems Journey”. The play walks you through the journey of dementia. You watch the common challenges play out in a traditional family and then see the difference in quality of life when the characters use PAC. The two-day conference that followed was filled with powerful education from Teepa Snow and the PAC Team about person-centered approach to care evolved to meet the complex and unique needs of individuals using effective and structured techniques. We are excited to share our knowledge with our caregivers on better understanding the behaviors and symptoms of people with dementia while building and improving their caregiving skills.
