"The caregiver is a jewel and very astute. My husband "came alive" with her visit which added to my delight. She really has a "wide angle lens" when dealing with clients and she's very observant in a constructive way...and always smiling."

Currently, 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. With the increasing prevalence of this disease, it is crucial that professional caregivers are well equipped to communicate and care for those with dementia. Teepa’s hands-on training and illustrations will leave you with unforgettable tips and techniques for providing exceptional care.
Family members are often the first to notice the signs of dementia and often the first to jump in to provide a range of coordination and care. The stress and logistics can be overwhelming.
