Once a month we invite residents and the public to join us for a health-related discussion.
Join us for a presentation by Jessica Kalb from TLC Homecare for the second of three sessions on dementia. This session covers Positive Physical Approach and Hand-under-Hand techniques that help care partners shift from simply dealing with cognitive and ability changes in individuals with dementia to creating a positive and caring environment by taking a step back and approaching care with thoughtful responses.
Date: Tuesday, July 9, 2019
Time: 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Location: Strode Independent Living, 89 Tom Wicker Lane
RSVP by calling (802) 728-7888 by July 8
Seating is limited. Reserve your space today.
Mark your calendars for the last session in this dementia series:
Session 3 – Understanding the Stages of Dementia
August 13, 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
In this last session, Jessica will discuss Teepa Snow’s GEMS model, which teaches the different stages of dementia and how the disease progresses. Attendees will learn the appropriate forms of care for individuals as they progress through each stage to improve interaction and appreciation.
