The Dementia Caregiver Guide Includes:

The Dementia Caregiver Guide reinforces the impact of Teepa Snow’s guidance and person-centered care interventions. In this simple, easy-to-read, 100-page guidebook, this collaborative effort with Cedar Village community shares beautiful photographic images of residents benefiting from the training and implementation of Positive Approach to Care techniques. Designed for family members, friends, and caregivers of those living with brain change, the purpose of this book is to help everyone understand the changes that occur with these conditions and assist them in providing better support and care practices. By appreciating what has changed but utilizing what is still possible, individuals living with healthy brains can choose interactions that are more positive, communication that is more productive, and care that is more effective and less challenging for all involved.
