Senior Helpers® of Lansing to Host Dementia and Caregiving Seminars

LANSING, Mich., April 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Senior Helpers®, the nation's premier provider of personalized in-home senior care, and Hospice of Lansing & Stoneleigh Residence, a local, independent, nonprofit hospice with 40 years' experience providing end of life care, today announced they will host educational sessions on caregiving techniques for dementia patients in Lansing, Michigan on Wednesday, April 17. The sessions were created in conjunction with, and will be led by, nationally renowned dementia care expert Teepa Snow of Positive Approach, LLC. 

The interactive sessions will explore the unique challenges associated with dementia and the proper caregiving practices that lead to positive interactions. In addition to expanding their Alzheimer's and dementia-related awareness and knowledge, participants will learn effective communication techniques, strategies to connect with people in a meaningful way, and methods of providing the proper resources at the right time. The event will be free and open to the public.

"At Senior Helpers, we know firsthand how difficult an Alzheimer's or dementia diagnosis can be, which is why we're passionately committed to educating our caregivers, healthcare professionals and the public on successful at-home care strategies," said Barbara Roden, president and owner of the Senior Helpers Southeast Michigan locations. "Teepa is at the forefront of today's conversation on Alzheimer's and dementia care and able to provide invaluable knowledge to seminar attendees. She will not only cover the many brain, behavioral, and functional changes associated with Alzheimer's and dementia, but how to deliver exceptional care tailored to a patient's specific needs."

There are currently 5.8 million Americans living with Alzheimer's, and that number is projected to reach 14 million by 2050. Many of these individuals will need specialized care to combat the disorder, and it's more important now than ever to equip caregivers with the necessary tools and knowledge to adequately assist those with memory loss.
