Hospitalizations: Challenging Times! How to Make a Difference

This special four-session event is designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of persons who provide medical care for persons with dementia patients and their families. Among the areas of focus will be care and communication techniques appropriate to the patient and their hospitalization or continued care outside the hospital. This will be especially helpful for the staff of nursing homes and assisted living facilities who provide hands-on care.

Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA is a dementia-care education specialist with a background in occupational therapy and over 30 years in clinical practice. She's worked in a variety of settings, with a variety of people, and offers a special kind of experiential training called multi-modal learning. She helps people go from what they think they know about dementia to greater awareness. She helps build knowledge (the why and the how) behind why people with dementia, or other forms of brain change, are doing what they are doing. And, she helps build skill because she believes, if you are going to make a difference, you've got to change. Their condition is changing them. Her question is, what are you going to do about it?
