Best Practices in Dementia Care Learning to Give Care Without the Fight
Teepa Snow MS, OTR/L, FAOTA
November 2, 2018 : 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
This in-depth intensive workshop will help learners use effective strategies for helping people with dementia during interactions, care delivery, and daily engagement. The goal is to help reduce resistance to care and foster participation and use of preserved skills. To do this, the workshop will guide learners to help them develop better observational skills to recognize and intervene effectively when behavioral challenges occur. The Gem Model will be introduced to address progressive changes over time with a positive perspective, focusing on what remains and what is unique and holds value, even as other things change and are lost. We will work on hands on ways of communicating and assisting with daily life and in times of distress. By the completion of the session, learners will have new tools that will be applied throughout the rest of the workshop.
