Teepa Snow is Coming!

For those of you who don't know who she is, Teepa Snow is the acknowledged and recognized expert on dementia behavior and how to help caregivers deal with it positively. She is an amazing practitioner of respectful and compassionate techniques, a great teacher for caregivers and professionals, and a truly empathetic and kind caregiver advocate. She is coming to Seattle for these events - I am lucky enough to be going to the February 11th session. Hopefully, I will learn more helpful techniques to pass on to my caregivers!
