Teepa Snow Dementia Workshop: September 12
Teepa Snow and A Positive Approach to Care presents a Dementia Workshop at Buncombe Street Methodist Church on September 12. Are you caring for a person living with dementia or Alzheimer’s? A well designed and supportive setting can help the person in your care. Through this workshop, Teepa Snow offers practical senior care solutions with tips and skills. This workshop will take place from 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM in Sisk Hall. Doors will open at 8:00 AM and registration is required. The cost to attend is $20/ person, paid online when you register. This includes lunch and refreshments. The registration deadline is September 5 and there will be a waitlist if it fills up. We will not be able to refund any cancellations after Friday, September 8.
Originally from West Virginia and western Pennsylvania, Teepa now lives outside Chapel Hill, North Carolina. She is a graduate of Duke University with a degree in Zoology. She received her MS degree from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. She has a wealth of clinical, teaching, and research experiences that have informed and influenced her philosophy, approach, and practice. Teepa’s life mission is to shed a positive light on dementia. Teepa and the Positive Approach to Care (PAC) Team share about dementia so that everyone can understand why changes are happening and how you can support those living with brain change in a more positive and respectful way.
The Alzheimer’s Association is pleased to offer assistance to help family caregivers of dementia to attend the Teepa Snow 2023 Workshop in Greenville. This “Sitter Service” is separate from the Alzheimer’s respite voucher program offered by the Area Agency on Aging.
In order to qualify and receive assistance the family caregiver will need to complete a Sitter Service application with the Alzheimer’s Association, SC Chapter. Applications can be requested by contacting Sam Wiley at (864) 622-0573, or by email at email@example.com Once the application is received and approved the family caregiver will receive an award letter that can be used to make arrangements for in-home care in order to attend the workshop. Applications will need to be applied for 2 weeks in advance of the workshop.Back to News
