Last week some members of staff from the Hospital of God had the privilege of attending a talk by world famous dementia expert from America, Teepa Snow.
Teepa is known for her innovative approach to providing support and care that places the person living with dementia in a pivotal role when determining what is needed. Her goal is to help communities, agencies, organisations, professionals, families, and individuals develop the awareness, knowledge, and skills needed to better support and care for someone living with the brain changes of dementia. She provides practical, hands on tips for interacting with people living with dementia (search for her on Youtube to see some examples of her work!)
Our staff found her talk inspiring and really useful, and are hoping to use some of her techniques in our day to day work.
