Attend the Positive Approach® to Care developed by Teepa Snow and moderated by Tauna Longest, CDP. This workshop encourages Care Partners to:
Respond to a person's change in cognition and abilities in a way that is not hurtful or offensive.
Understand that, with practice, common "reactions" to the person with dementia can become thoughtful "responses" that improve quality of life for everyone involved.
Recognize that the person with dementia is "doing the best they can" and if something isn't working, it's the responsibility of the Care Partner to change their approach toward the person living with dementia as well as to discover what can be done differently to address the challenging situation.
Be aware of environments surrounding a person with dementia and make changes as necessary.
