FREE class here at Grace Center! If you’re caring for a loved with dementia, there’s help.

 

This Positive Approach to Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care training is based on training materials developed by Teepa L Snow, National Dementia Care and Training Specialist and is being provided through Oregon Care Partners.

  • Learn how to determine “normal Aging” versus “Not Normal Aging”.
  • Develop new skill related to approach and ability to connect with people affected by dementia
  • By focusing on a person’s needs and retained abilities, learn “helping” behaviors to promote a sense of control and self-direction.
  • Develop observation skills to recognize signals of “unmet needs and growing distress” in the person you care for and ways to respond that will reduce anxiety and improve quality of life.
