Senior Helpers in conjunction with Advocate Lutheran General Hospital is proud to be sponsoring two educational seminars Wednesday, November 2, 2016 at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital’s Olson Auditorium, in Park Ridge, Illinois.
Nationally renowned dementia care educator Teepa Snow will use true-to-life stories and case studies to help educate professional healthcare providers, from 9 a.m.-noon and family members caring for loved ones, from 3:30 p.m.-5 p.m.
When you attend either of the Alzheimer’s/Parkinson’s/ dementia seminar with Teepa Snow, you will receive a free Alzheimer’s DVD and the new Parkinson’s DVD packed with advice on how to help your patient or loved one.
Even if you have attended Teepa Snow’s other educational seminars in past years, you will hear new information that can be of tremendous help .
“Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA, with more than 30 years of experience, has a unique perspective on how the brain controls our body and our behaviors, giving her the ability to explain how dementia affects a person’s thoughts and actions. The free DVDs that have been created, to help people who suffer from these diseases and their loved ones, understand the medical impact on their lives, said Bob Tucker, a qualified dementia care provider (QDCP) and co-owner of the Senior Helpers office serving the north and northwest suburbs.
Senior Helpers and Teepa Snow have joined forces on a revolutionary program called Senior GEMS®, which helps professionals and family members care for those battling these devastating diseases. Teepa’s unique classification system makes it easier for people to understand which stage of dementia a person is experiencing, and provides tools to improve the lives of all those impacted by these terrible diseases.
“Teepa Snow’s personal mission is to help, healthcare professionals and families care for people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia...and she does it so well,” added Abbie Tucker, a senior advocate and client services director, certified senior advisor (CSA), a qualified dementia care provider (QDCP) and co-owner of the local Senior Helpers office.
