Innovative Approaches To Dementia Care With Teepa Snow

teepasnow

As one of America’s leading educators on dementia, Teepa Snow has developed a dementia care philosophy reflective of her education, work experience, medical research, and first hand caregiving experiences.  She is a graduate of Duke University, and received her MS degree from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.  As an Occupational Therapist with over 30 years of experience in geriatrics, she has worked as the OT Director in a head injury facility, a clinical specialist in geriatrics for a Veteran’s Administration Medical Center, and a Restorative Care Coordinator for a long term care facility.  Her hands on caregiving experiences include providing direct care in home healthassisted living, long term care, and rehabilitation settings. Teepa also served as the Director of Education and Lead Trainer for the Eastern N.C. Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, and as a clinical associate professor at UNC’s School of Medicine, Program on Aging.

Teepa’s teaching style integrates facts about the brain and what happens to someone when doing, thinking, reasoning, or processing becomes different or difficult. Her teaching style is unique, entertaining, and energetic, even when watching online. Completing online training is first step in laying a strong foundation for continued learning. Teepa’s training organization, Positive Approach LLC, provides in person training and consulting to healthcare professionals and families with the goal of helping them grow their dementia care awareness, knowledge, and skill in order to improve quality of life for people living with dementia.
