Dementia Caregiver Circle – A Wellbeing Approach

What does it mean to live well with dementia? In this four-session series we will explore how to bring a positive approach to caring for someone living with dementia. Each session will be interactive with discussions, video, slides, and skills training using Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach® to Care (PAC). You will gain a toolbox of dementia knowledge and skills on how to sustain connection, communication and wellbeing throughout the progression of dementia.

Here are topics that we will cover:

  • What is dementia?
  • Brain changes with dementia. Understanding the amygdala response.
  • Sensory changes that effect connection and communication.
  • Progression of dementia – skills lost and skills that remain (using GEMS Model). What GEM is my person?
  • Connecting and communication – adapting our approach.
  • Being a detective – Seeing behaviors as unmet needs.

Hosted by Kathleen Landel, PAC Independent Certified Consultant and national PAC Mentor

Dates: 4 Mondays, 1-2:30pm

June 8 & 22

July 6 & 20

These are small circles limited to 12 participants. To register, click on this link:
