Senior Helpers® of Sun City Center and Hillsborough County to Host Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Caregiving Seminar
Nationally Renowned Dementia and Alzheimer’s Expert Teepa Snow Partners with Leading In-Home Senior Care Providers to Deliver Valuable Caregiving Insights
TAMPA, Fla. — Senior Helpers®, the nation’s premier provider of personalized in-home senior care, today announced it will host an educational session on caregiving techniques for dementia patients on January 9, 2019 at Kings Point Veterans Theater (1900 Club House Drive, Sun City Center, Florida). The seminar was created in conjunction with, and will be led by, nationally renowned dementia care expert Teepa Snow of Positive Approach, LLC, who co-created Senior Helpers’ award winning Senior Gems® Alzheimer’s and dementia care program.
The interactive session will explore the unique challenges associated with dementia and the proper caregiving practices that lead to positive interactions. In addition to Alzheimer’s and dementia-related awareness and knowledge, participants will learn effective communication techniques, strategies to connect with people in a meaningful way and methods of providing the proper resources at the right time. The event is free and open to the public. Attendees are also welcomed to enjoy a complimentary, light breakfast and warm lunch at the event.
“At Senior Helpers, we know firsthand how difficult a Dementia or Alzheimer’s diagnosis can be, which is why we’re passionately committed to educating our caregivers, office staff, families, healthcare professionals and the public on successful caregiving strategies that we know through our Senior Gems® Alzheimer’s and dementia care program. The seminar is one of the ways we give back to our community,” said Scott Fox, owner of the Senior Helpers of Hillsborough and Sun City Center locations. “Teepa is at the forefront of today’s conversation on Alzheimer’s and dementia care and is able to provide invaluable knowledge to seminar attendees. She will not only cover the many brain, behavioral, and functional changes associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia, but how to deliver exceptional care tailored to a patient’s specific needs.”
There are currently 5.8 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s, and that number is projected to reach 14 million by 2050. Many of these individuals will need specialized care to combat the disorder, and it’s more important now than ever to equip caregivers with the necessary tools and knowledge to adequately assist those with memory loss.
