Try not to do
the Lone Ranger thing.”
ONE OF MANY RESOURCES is Teepa Snow, the wonderful teacher/role model/professional consultant/trainer who shares her knowledge with us through oodles of videos on YouTube.

She is well-known for her fine tuned guidance from her years of experience.

Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Care
Some of Teepa Snow videos. Care partners usually find her extremely helpful as they seek to become the best caregiver for their loved one. Look at these few to see if you relate to her approach… then search in Google using your own words.
Example: They can’t say much, but the special words on the right are a skill those with dementia have left after language is gone…”Language on the left, rhythm on the right, lose on the left, retain on the right” … except for special words.

After you have a look here, consider spending time searching through the titles she has on her own Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Care YouTube Channel...
Teepa Snow has assisted so many millions of caregivers through her lectures, videos, podcasts, talk show and website. Take advantage of her knowledge and listen to her very detailed descriptions to help us learn and understand.
