Event Information

Teepa Snow's Positive Approach to caregiving has become the gold standard in dealing with dementia patients. She has a program of "Training the Trainers". 

Our local Metro Indy Lewy Body Dementia Caregiver Support Group is privileged to have two of her certified trainers scheduled to talk to our group on September 13 and October 11 meetings from 2:00 - 3:00 PM at Amore Pizzeria & Ristorante in Boone Village, Zionsville, IN

At the September meeting, Christina McCann, Care Navigator for the Justus Companies, will give an overall view of Teepa's approach to caregiving followed with questions and answers specific to LBD care. 

At the October meeting, Teresa Sargent will talk about our approach and setting the tone for the day... therefore decreasing the potential for negative behavior responses.

These speakers will be open to the public in an effort to raise more awareness of Lewy body dementia and how to approach a person with dementia with Lewy bodies/Parkinson's disease dementia, and their caregivers.
