Teepa Snow - 1 Part Webinar Event 

 

A Step Above: Providing Dementia Care in the Home

 

 

 

 

Date: On Demand- Anytime

Duration: 45 Minutes

 


The changes in the healthcare landscape have affected care metrics, reimbursements, and increased competition between organizations within the hospice and home care settings. However, providing the utmost quality of care remains a priority. With a major shift towards providing care in the home and the rise of dementia, home care and hospice workers need to understand how best serve those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia in order to provide person-centered care and have a step above the competition. 
 
Join us for a webinar with Teepa Snow, the leader in dementia training, as she focuses on providing dementia care in a home and hospice setting. Teepa will identify observational skills that help us to recognize and intervene effectively when challenges occur. She will emphasize the value of matching helping behaviors to the person’s needs and retained abilities, along with modifying the task demands, environment, and most importantly, the caregiver’s approach. These elements, combined with many others, will form the base for problem-solving, personalized care planning and a competitive edge.

 


Learning Objectives: 
  • Describe effective combinations of multi-modal helping techniques when presented with someone with dementia
  • Recognize the value of consistent positive reinforcement and active programming to promote well-being in reducing challenging behaviors throughout the disease process
  • Use a structured and organized approach to recognizing and coping with challenging behaviors by meeting needs and intervening early and often with at-risk individuals on a regular basis
 
 
 
 
Please note: this webinar is a free event, and no CEUs or certificates of participation are provided. All registrants will receive a copy of the recorded webinar and slides if you cannot attend the live event.
