Strategies for Dementia Care: Teepa Snow Shares Her Positive Approach® to Care

With an aging population, dementia is an increasingly common challenge faced by professional and family caregivers alike. This conference will help caregivers better understand behaviors of those with dementia and effective strategies for communication and engagement.  Participants will learn about normal aging, ways to reduce risks of dementia, and ways to facilitate meaningful interactions and activities for those with the disease.

Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA is an occupational therapist with 40 years of clinical and academic experience.  She uses humor and her extensive expertise to teach about brain changes that occur with dementia, the impact of these changes on behavior, and practical strategies to optimize care and support for those with dementia as the disease progresses over time.  Click here for Teepa’s full bio.
