Normal vs. Not Normal Aging: Understanding the Difference

October 13, 2018 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
15 Craigside


This workshop will be led by the Hawaii Positive Approach to Care Certified Trainer Patricia Bemis RN

Please join Positive Approach to Care Trainer Patricia Bemis RN for a Positive Approach to Care™ workshop, developed by Teepa Snow, that will provide essential information on how to have a positive and meaningful relationship with loved ones with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia throughout their journey. This seminar will help professional care providers, family members, and anyone who is trying to cope with the changes that happen with dementia.

The 2-hour workshop will help learners recognize and understand “normal” and “not normal” aging.  Learn to develop new skills related to approach, cueing, and ability to connect with people affected by dementia. The workshop will also address typical issues that occur from early stages of the condition through mid-disease, and into the final care concerns that are part of the progression.
