Lake Huron Medical Center Offers "Until There's a Cure, There's Care," A Series Designed for Caregivers of Those Living with Dementia

11-03-2016

Lake Huron Medical Center is offering a four (4) part program series, “Until There’s a Cure, There’s Care,” based on Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Care (PAC) beginning Thursday, December 1, 2017. Teepa Snow is a nationally recognized dementia educator who has helped thousands of people by sharing her dementia care philosophy and caregiving techniques.

Recently, Lake Huron Medical Center’s Senior Services Coordinator, Rosemary Hunger, earned the Positive Approach to Care (PAC) Trainer Certification. The only certified PAC trainer in St. Clair County, Rosemary has demonstrated the ability to train others in Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Care philosophy. Certification required more than 15 hours of experiential and interactive training, an in-depth look into various learning styles and facilitation techniques that engage learners.

The “Until There’s a Cure, There’s Care” programs will be held at Lake Huron Medical Center from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Program dates and topics are listed below:

Thursday, December 1, 2016 – Aging: What’s Normal? What’s Not?

Thursday, December 15, 2016 – Positive Approach to Care

Thursday, January 5, 2017 – Building Positive Skills

Thursday, January 19, 2017 – Teepa’s Gems

This program is designed to help families better understand how it feels to be living with dementia and related changes. While attending all four seminars is not a requirement, it is encouraged because the topics build on each other. To register for the “Until There’s a Cure, There’s Care” program, please contact Rosemary Hunger at (810) 216-1035.
