1. Teepa Snow - Communicating with Persons with Dementia & Developmental Disabilities - Caregiver Spotlight 52:09

I this episode, I am shining the Caregiver spotlight on someone in the caregiving space that has my utmost respect – Teepa Snow. She’s an Occupational Therapist with over 40 years of rich and varied clinical and academic experience. Her company, Positive Approach to Care® (PAC) provides online and in-person education and products for anyone impacted by dementia. I can say firsthand that Teepa presents with extraordinary expertise and humor to audiences throughout the world.

In today’s show, we learn how Teepa’s experience caring for grandparents shaped her career focus, the language and visual cues to use to better communicate with our care partner, her Self-Care rituals, where she obtains her trusted dementia information, how her training may also help better communicate with persons with developmental disabilities, and the story of how she got the name ‘Teepa’.
