Teepa Snow will present virtual MAIA Post-Conference Workshops for direct care providers who care for persons with dementia and/or Alzheimer’s disease. Teepa’s philosophy is based on years of medical research and her background in occupational therapy. Her presentations give participants a hands-on opportunity to try out new caregiving skills in a safe, engaging environment – this year completely online because of COVID-19.
The Post-Conference Workshop is part of the annual Mid-America Institute on Aging and Wellness, presented by USI and SWIRCA & More and supported by the USI Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP).
This sixth annual pre-conference workshop is designed especially for direct care providers who work with or care for persons with memory disorders, dementia, and/or Alzheimer's disease. Family caregivers, certified nursing assistants, activities and dietary staff, housekeepers, social workers, nurses, long term care personnel, and home health care providers will find it useful and relevant.
This project is supported by the University of Southern Indiana's Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP) funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Proud partners are University of Southern Indiana, Deaconess Clinic, Generations and SWIRCA & More.
As one of America’s leading educators on dementia, Teepa Snow's philosophy is reflective of her education, work experience, available medical research, and first hand caregiving interactions. Working as a Registered Occupational Therapist for over 35 years, her wealth of experience has led her to develop Positive Approach® to Care techniques and training models that now are used by families and professionals working or living with dementia or other brain changes throughout the world.
