Most education models teach the WHAT of dementia including mostly facts and information. PAC takes it a step further and teaches the HOW to live in relationship with a changing brain. Teepa Snow’s relational approach and hands on skill techniques offer the interpersonal skills needed to improve quality of life for everyone involved.
In this one-day skill-building class, you will learn and practice essential techniques of dementia care from Teepa Snow. Have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a trained mentor in a small group setting. You will develop skills for improving the quality of your interactions and care. You will also gain abilities for managing the challenging situations encountered in dementia care.
Positive Physical Approach™ (PPA)
This is the first step in creating compassionate relationships. It provides a way to connect with people, visually and verbally. PPA asks the question, “Can you except a connection from me right now?” and respectfully accepts the answer or offers an alternative.
The GEMS®: Brain Change Model
This classification model encourages us to get curious about the stages of brain change by focusing on abilities that are present versus what is lost. It provides us with the knowledge to dynamically assess where people are, what they need, and what is possible. The GEMS® advocate that everyone living with brain change when given the opportunity will shine.
This allows care partners and people living with dementia the opportunity to build an authentic relationship through a non-threatening physical connection. HuH says, “I am here to support you – to do WITH you, not TO you.”
