Description: PLEASE NOTE: CEUs are no longer available for this session. Teepa Snow outlines the concept of people living with dementia as unique and precious gems, in a way to move from recognizing losses and instead see what is possible with the right setting and the right care, so they can shine. Ways to detect and respond to significant changes in abilities impacting the person’s engagement in meaningful activities in all areas will also be discussed. This event was made possible through a collaboration between the American Society on Aging, Senior Helpers, and Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. From December 19, 2011.
