Kensington Offers Virtual Dementia Program | Daily Democrat

The Kensington at Fort Madison is hosting a virtual event at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1. The event will feature Teepa Snow, a well-known educator and expert in dementia care.

The subject of the event is “Why are they doing this?” » Understand the symptoms and conditions of dementia. The event aims to help care partners of people with dementia better understand why their loved ones say or do unexpected and difficult things. Participants will learn about the many changes that occur in the brain as the disease progresses and how their reactions and responses affect loved ones.

In 2005, she founded Positive Approach to Care (PAC), a company that provides training, services and products to dementia care worldwide. She is active on social media and provides helpful tools on her own website, teepasnow.com.
