Event description

Description

Background
Teepa Snow has developed the Positive Approach to Care™ concept to support people living with dementia by equipping both formal and informal carers with specific skills aimed at increasing understanding of what it is like to live with dementia. Her approach is focused on care delivery, rather than theories.

Positive Approach to Care™ training incorporates:
· GEMS™ concept, where people living with dementia are viewed as precious gems (sapphire, diamond, emerald, amber, ruby and pearl) and the focus is on what skills remain, rather than what is lost. It explains the changes in the brain and why people living with dementia may behave in a certain way and supports the care giver to appreciate what it is like to live with dementia, to accept the person with dementia is unable to change but that the caregiver can be flexible in their approach to make care giving easier by matching the approach with the specific needs of the individual.
· Positive Physical Approach™ (PPA™), including Hand under Hand™ (HuH™), concept is a practical and physical method of working with the person with dementia to connect and deliver care on a variety of levels.
The training
The training is delivered by Sarah-Jayne Berry who is the Clinical Lead Occupational Therapist within North Yorkshire Mental Health Services for Older People; she is also a certified PAC™ trainer and PAC certified Coach.
