Description

Watch world renowned dementia expert and author, Teepa L. Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA, for this engaging workshop as you explore the depth and breadth of change that various forms of dementia have on the person’s interest in and ability to consume food and drink—for enjoyment and survival. During this highly interactive program, you will learn the skills necessary to design and implement programs that serve your client to optimize remaining abilities and capacities while respecting and acknowledging the limitations that this neurodegenerative condition ultimately has on the person.

Drawing on over 30 years of clinical experience and research with dementia, Teepa will teach you practical and useful strategies and techniques to maximize functional performance, engagement and safety. You will walk away with screening and assessment maneuvers, environmental and programming modifications, ability-based cueing and assistance from first symptoms to end of the life considerations, and will be able to make a positive and valuable difference in the lives of people living with dementia whether—

  • guiding in food and drink preparation during early stage situations
  • fostering item selection and supported intake in mid-stages
  • offering moisture and tastes for sensory satisfaction only at life’s end.
