Join the Journey of Dementia Care: “A Glimpse into the Positive Approach to Care” – Part 3
At The Kensington, we understand firsthand the challenges that come with being a caregiver. Finding ways to make this challenge more manageable is essential to improving the quality of life for all involved.
Join us for part three of this three-part caregiver series as we discuss Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Care (PAC) philosophy and training techniques with our Memory Care Director and PAC Certified Trainer, Tonya Embly. The Kensington Falls Church utilizes PAC training and education throughout our building as a practical and compassionate approach to care.
Who is Teepa Snow and What is PAC?
Teepa Snow is one of the leading educators on dementia with 40 years of clinical practice as an occupational therapist. Teepa’s care strategies and techniques look at what is known about brain function and changes that happen with various conditions and integrate that information with therapeutic approaches. This is where she founded Positive Approach to Care, LLC, or also known as PAC. This person-centered approach evolved to meet the complex and unique needs of individuals using effective and structured techniques. Teepa and her company strive to grow appreciation of differences that will lead to better care and support of those living with changing abilities.
