 Staff Caregiver Training 101

This training was created with the caregiver in mind. This is an interactive class which includes a comprehensive overview of the common habits and challenges of memory care clients. The presentation will have powerpoint instruction, hands on training and practice that will include Teepa Snow’s trademark Hand Under Hand technique and Positive Physical Approach. The caregiver will learn to appreciate the concept of getting permission to enter into their client’s personal space and learn to keep the peace instead of accidentally causing irritation. These skills will change the relationship between your clients and their caregivers in a very positive way.

You can also schedule to have Teresa follow up the training class with an on the job review where she can come to your community and encourage your caregivers in excellent care and helpful techniques to keep the peace with your residents.
