Event description

Description

This full day workshop focuses on Positive Approach to Care’s care partnering techniques including

Positive Physical Approach (PPA) and Hand-under-Hand (HuH). These newly learned skills

enable care partners to shift from simply “dealing with the behaviours” to creating a positive and caring environment

The GEMS workshop offers an overview Teepa Snow’s dementia classification (developed from the basic structure of Allen Cognitive Disability Levels). Understanding them will lead to an adjustment of expectations, modification of cues and support, and more accurate communication and ‘hands-on’ care behaviours to better meet ever-changing needs. The GEMS advocate that people living with dementia, when done with rather than done to and provided with the just right care and setting, can still shine.
