Join Teepa for this exclusive, CPD qualifying, seminar as she shares her passion for dementia care and unique philosophical approach.

Teepa Snow’s powerful and passionate advocacy led to her pioneering classification and training strategies GEMS® (dementia classification model) and the Positive Approach® to Care (training) which continue to deliver impactful, compassionate, improvement-led care.

The three-part conference consists of sessions focused on the mental, behavioural and physical aspects of dementia care and the related practices that can be easily adopted to stimulate positive improvements within each aspect.

You will:

- Learn how to read challenging behavioural cues for a deeper understanding of what triggers the behaviour and how modifying these triggers can alleviate and positively shift the behaviour

- Develop a deeper understanding of the real barriers of interaction between carer and caree and learn effective, efficient problem solving that integrates a consideration of sensorial and tactile stimuli

- Benefit from a networking opportunity for mental and health care stakeholders to connect and establish collaborative learning, support and service-related relationships

- Engage in Talk Time – a moderated platform for all participants to apply Teepa’s philosophy and practices to their individual professional perspectives and experiences, specific cases and first-hand experiences in a thought provoking and collaborative group discussion.
