About the Event
This 8hr experience promises to take you on an interactive exploratory journey that will help you feel, understand and appreciate the world of those living with Dementia, both on the inside and on the outside. It’s our job to help people be in charge of their own lives and help them maintain a quality of life that aligns with who they are and how they want to “live” out the rest of their lives. We know that for some families and Care Partners it is really hard for them to wrap their heads around what is happening and how they should feel about it. First we must start by understanding the world in which they live, and educate ourselves on the “why” behind the feelings, frustrations and challenges that come along the journey.
In this workshop you will:
• How we connect matters, whether it is with the people we support, Caregivers, Families, or each other as staff, “How we start dictates… Dictates where we end…”
• Discover the world of Dementia by understanding how people with Dementia experience their
new and ever changing world. Understanding the world in which we support helps us to provide
quality care that allows people to shine.
• Understanding our Family Caregivers that allows us to support and guide through the Caregiver journey and help explain the feelings, emotions and uncertainties that come along the way.
• Exploring thought process and theories around capturing the kind of information needed to ensure
that everyone who supports someone with Dementia can develop a quality plan that leads to the
kind of life that supports both what is important to and important for people with Dementia and
• Learn Positive Approach to Care, Hand under Hand Philosophy and Process by Teepa Snow
techniques that will enhance every interaction and help to reduce negative reactions and
