Former Zoologist turned dementia expert discusses her positive approach to care

American dementia expert Teepa Snow was in Australia recently to hold seminars on her ‘Positive Approach to Care Training Strategy’.

The seminars are designed for aged care professionals and explores a positive approach to dementia care and the effective engagement and support of people living with dementia.

Snow has 40 years’ teaching, academic and clinical experience and her strategy is based around presenting practical approaches to dementia care.

“If I can get people to recognise, ‘Hey, that’s just like a client I work with’, then what I share has much more immediacy, and participants are a lot more interested in what happens next,” Snow said.

Snow spoke with Aged Care Insite about her unique approach to dementia care and her past as a Zoologist.
