DEMENTIA EXPERT TEEPA SNOW TO HOLD CAREGIVER EDUCATION SEMINAR AT THE KANE CENTER

Renowned dementia care expert Teepa Snow will present a special caregiver education seminar “Why Did They Do That? Understanding the Symptoms and Behaviors of Dementia” on Wednesday, January 3 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Kane Center in Stuart.

Snow is one of the nation’s foremost dementia care experts with more than 30 years of experience as a certified occupational therapist and a dementia care educator. Her approach to caregiver training is “show don’t tell,” creating a unique, interactive educational experience that helps caregivers clearly visualize how to utilize her advice and techniques.

Snow has developed a multitude of programs and educational resources to train professional and family caregivers. She focuses on developing and maintaining effective communication to keep individuals with dementia connected with the people and world around them. She explains the progression of dementia, how this affects overall health and behavior, and how to build a holistic program of therapeutic support to help a person with dementia maintain the highest possible quality of life.

The seminar is hosted by Senior Helpers of the Treasure Coast as part of the organization’s partnership with Snow, and sponsored by Allegro Senior Living and the Council on Aging of Martin County at the Kane Center.

A VIP luncheon with Teepa Snow, sponsored by Symphony at Stuart Assisted Living & Memory Care, will be from noon to 1 p.m. prior to the seminar. Tickets are $30 with all proceeds going to benefit the Council on Aging’s Adult Day Club. Seating is limited and must be reserved in advance by calling 772.223.7800.
