Dementia changes the brain. Accordingly people caring for those with dementia must change how to interact with them. In the Positive Approach to Care™ discussed in this talk, presented by a professional dementia caregiver and trainer, you will be introduced to the sensory processing changes of dementia and to the Hand Under Hand™(HUH) technique to calm, guide and assist those for whom we care. Get a chance to try this out and see how it feels first hand.
