Positive Approach to Care (PAC)
One of the most awesome things that has happened to me along this journey, is finding Teepa Snow. There are so many reason why I am a better person, care partner and mentor to the people I support, but the biggest gift she has given me, is the ability to help those who support people living with Dementia the ability to see what their people have left, the PAC to support them and an explanation of "why" people living with Dementia do what they do.
As a Certified PAC Trainer I am honored to join her cause and spread her message!
