The purpose of this workshop is to apply evidence-based information to the care of adults who have dementia in order to improve care outcomes. The intended audience includes health care staff who work or come in contact with adults who have dementia or other cognitive impairments.

Workshop details

A three (3) hour-long Positive Approach® to Care (PAC) interactive workshop based on the work by Teepa Snow focusing on Normal Aging Versus Not Normal Aging.

Objectives: Compare and contrast Normal Aging versus Not Normal Aging. Participants will learn about the five sensory input processing systems of the brain and the major differences between the protective and discriminating sensations in each. Participants will take away an understanding of the impact of the changing sensory awareness and how its processed in the brain as dementia progresses.
