Teepa Snow Presents: Developing Activities that Have Meaning for Those Living with Dementia
Thursday, October 10, 2019
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM CDT
This webinar will help activity directors, nurses and caregivers develop and offer activity programs that are appropriate and effective when residents have various degrees of cognitive impairment. The session will help the learners to better understand activities regarding their skill demands and value for the person. Emphasis will be placed on providing caregivers with the skills needed to determine the residents’ remaining skills and interests and then selecting activities that would promote interaction and engagement while reducing distress and isolation. The session will build observation skills and the ability to use simple, inexpensive tasks and materials to help residents feel productive and involved.
Registration for Teepa Snow Presents: Developing Activities that Have Meaning for Those Living with Dementia Webinar is now open.
